PHP Version Statistics - October 2014
October 28, 2014 @ 11:23:13

Pascal Martin's latest post (in French, but the English version is coming soon) shares some statistics he's gathered around the usage of various software around the web, more specifically those involved in web-based applications.

I've collected statistics about the use of different PHP versions several times. The first time was in September 2011 and the most recent was in November 2013. At this point, PHP 5.2 still accounted for 34.4% of all PHP installations with PHP 5.3 moving up to 48.7%. This new data was collected the weekend of October 19th, 2014. At this point, the current stable versions of PHP are 5.4.34, 5.5.18 and 5.6.2. PHP 5.3 is no longer maintained (since August 14th 2014) and PHP 5.2 hasn't been supported for 4 years now.

He's broken up the statistics into a few different sections:

  • Web server software
  • Usage of major versions of PHP
  • Usage of minor versions of PHP
  • Versions in use under each of the major version numbers

He includes both the raw numbers (percentages) and some graphs showing the results in a bit more consumable fashion. It's interesting to see that, despite it being quite an old version now, PHP 5.3.x still has the largest share in the usage results.

UPDATE: He's posted the English version now as well.

Zend Developer Zone:
An Extra Special Zend Framework Bug Hunt for October 2010
October 19, 2010 @ 08:41:46

On the Zend Developer Zone Ralph Schindler has a new post about the updated dates for this month's Zend Framework Bug Hunt Days because of an upcoming minor release. They'd like to get all of the fixes in they can before the release.

Normally we hold our monthly bug hunt on the 3rd Thursday, Friday and Saturday of the month. But, since this month we'll be releasing a release candidate of our next minor release, we're moving the bug hunt up a few days. That's right, Tomorrow and Wednesday of October (the 19th and 20th) 2010, we'll be hosting our monthly bug hunt. This is your chance to get your patches into 1.11.0. And, in case you haven't heard, ZF 1.11.x will be the last minor release branch of Zend Framework before 2.0.

The event has helped the project so much in the past and has helped to close hundreds of bugs since it was started. If you'd like to get involved in the hunt this time (happening today, the 19th and tomorrow the 20th) check out the post for complete details on where to get started and where you can go for some help.
