PHP 5.3.29 is available, PHP 5.3 reaching end of life
August 14, 2014 @ 08:50:12

The PHP.net site has announced both the release of PHP 5.3.29 and a reminder that the PHP 5.3.x series is coming close to its "end of life" date.

The PHP development team announces the immediate availability of PHP 5.3.29. This release marks the end of life of the PHP 5.3 series. Future releases of this series are not planned. All PHP 5.3 users are encouraged to upgrade to the current stable version of PHP 5.5 or previous stable version of PHP 5.4, which are supported till at least 2016 and 2015 respectively. PHP 5.3.29 contains about 25 potentially security related fixes backported from PHP 5.4 and 5.5

If you're using any release in the PHP 5.3.x series, it's highly recommended you either update to this latest version or you make the jump up to something in the PHP 5.4 or 5.5 series. You can get this latest release either from the main downloads page or for Windows users the windows.php.net site. The full change log can be found here.

Zend Developer Zone:
The PAT directory
January 22, 2007 @ 15:58:00

In an effort to keep track of some of the lesser seen patches to the core of PHP, the Zend Developer Zone has started a weekly summary that talks about the PAT directory:

The PAT directory contains patches (fixes and improvements for the C source code behind PHP) that have been sent to the internal developers' mailing list by members of the wider PHP community. The mailing list is fairly busy - as are the developers - and patches aren't always noticed by someone able to review and perhaps apply them; this can lead to people repeatedly mailing the same patch to the list in the belief that they're being ignored!

The idea behind the posts is to provide a listing of those patches for those looking for them (including the PHP dev team) until they've been evaluated and moved out of the PAT directory purgatory.

July 10, 2006 @ 05:54:34

Jim Plush has a release announcement (complete with a list of updates made) to his popular MyBic Ajax and PHP package - version 0.6.5.

Version 0.6.5 of the MyBic PHP/AJAX framework was released today on sourceforge (http://www.litfuel.net/mybic). It's been 3 months since the last update which shows that MyBic is quickly approaching the 1.0 release version which means it will be stable enough for use in all types of production systems. It is currently being used in several enterprise companies at the moment and is being used in desktop like ajax applications as well. Thanks to all who help make MyBic that much better!

The listed updates are:

  • added loadCSS method that allows you to add stylesheets at runtime
  • fixed bug for abort timeout not working when requests are queued
  • fixed issue where format and method weren't being used if the requests were queued
  • mybic_server.php now supports either using the mybic_json.php file OR omar Kilani's C based JSON extension
  • added ability to stop ajax calls until a certain piece of functionality finishes

To download this latest version of the library or just get complete details, head over to the project's site.
