PHP 5.2.0 RC3 Released!
Sep 01, 2006 @ 14:10:34

Ilia Alshanetsky has posted about the release of the latest release candidate for the upcoming PHP version, 5.2 - PHP 5.2.0 RC3.

The third and possibly the final release candidate of PHP 5.2.0 is now available for download. The number of changes are fairly small, which is always good when nearing the final release, but there were 2 important fixes that need attention.

He notes that there are only really two major issues that need to be addressed before the final release and are included in this release candidate - a memory corruption issue and a problem in the session shutdown order.

You can download this release now: Bzipped file || Gzipped file.

Finally... Pecl4Win with php5.2
Aug 11, 2006 @ 07:15:35

From Elizabeth Smith's blog today, there's some of her comments on a recetly added feature to the upcoming PHP 5.2 version - the inclusion of the Pecl4Win functionality.

Snaps of php are something I use all the time - heck for a long while the php 5.1 snaps were more stable then the official 5.0 releases (that was a weird time). And then they came up with the very lovely Pecl4Win (which I frequent all the time :) However, there is a snag in the system. As I grouched about in an earlier post there were no php 5.2 branch snaps available.

And today as if by magic 5.2 branch compiles start - HURRAY.

She notes having to downgrade her install to get things working correctly, but it's not a difficult process. She also includes a specific issue she had with the "unresolved external symbol _zend_memory_peak_usage is xdebug's problem".
