PHP 5.4.0beta1 Released for Testing
September 16, 2011 @ 12:12:22

The PHP development team has released the latest beta version of the PHP 5.4.x series for testing - 5.4.0beta1.

Release candidates are development packages released to check if any critical problems have slipped into the code during the previous development period. Release candidates are NOT for production use, they are for testing purposes only even though in most cases there are almost no differences between the general availability (GA) release and the last RC. You can help the PHP Team and yourself detect problems by installing and testing release candidates on your own (non-production!) server.

You're encouraged to compile this version on your platform and include the "make test" command in the process to report any issues found directly back to the PHP dev group. Windows users can find the latest binaries over on windows.php.net.

Lukas Smith's Blog:
back Is your chosen PHP framework on the PHP primary tester mailinglist?
February 10, 2009 @ 07:54:52

Lukas Smith asks developers a question in his latest blog post: "Is your chosen framework on the PHP primary tester mailing list?"

This is a question you should be asking the developers of the framework you are using. Same of course goes for any PHP application you care about. [...] We announce all PHP releases on this list (actually until now we have only announced RC's, but we are expanding this to also cover alpha and beta releases).

He suggests that subscribing to this list simplifies the process of keeping up with the latest releases of PHP and gives them a chance to report back with any issues they might find with them.

Every release runs the risk of BC breaks, intentional or not. Projects that want to make life easy for their users participate actively in the process of testing PHP releases. It makes the life of the PHP developers a lot easier .. and who doesn't want to make their life's easier?
