SitePoint PHP Blog:
Help Develop PHP 5.6 RC1 on Homestead
June 23, 2014 @ 11:08:01

In this new post from the SitePoint PHP blog Bruno Skvorc puts out a "call to action" for the PHP developers out there to help develop and test out PHP 5.6RC1 (the current 5.6 release candidate) with the Laravel Homestead virtual machine.

Last week we talked about Laravel Homestead, a prepared local development environment for PHP built on Vagrant by Taylor Otwell, meant to serve as a common starting point for all Laravel (and possibly other PHP) projects. [...] A week before that, we talked about the end of beta for 5.6, and the beginning of the RC program. [...] In this post, we'll have a quick look at how we can install it over the regular PHP in Laravel Homestead and report the build feedback back to the QA site.

He refers to the other article for installation instructions and quickly gets into the steps needed to download and install the RC1 version. There's a few dependencies to install before you compile, but with a few commands it should be off and running quickly. Screenshots are provided to show you the output each step of the way too. If all goes well, the output of a "php -v" command line call will show the successful build of PHP 5.6.0RC1.

Derick Rethans' Blog:
Random Bugs and Testing RCs
February 27, 2012 @ 11:48:29

In a new post to his blog Derick Rethans mirrors the call made by Rasmus Lerdorf at this year's PHP UK Conference - get involved (and help test PHP)!

At the PHP UK Conference Rasmus mentioned that he wants more people contributing to PHP. There are plenty of ways how you can do that.

Derick points out two more immediate ways you can help, one not even requiring any C knowledge:

  • Help test the Release Candidates (like the current PHP 5.4.0 RC8) with a call to "make test" just after your compile.
  • The recently added "random PHP bug" functionality that's been added to the bugs.php.net site

Gonzalo Ayuso's Blog:
Playing with the new PHP5.4 features
November 28, 2011 @ 08:10:51

Gonzalo Ayuso has a new post to his blog today showing some of the experimentation he's done with PHP 5.4 features like the short array syntax, calling methods through arrays and traits.

PHP5.4 it's close and it's time to start playing with the new cool features. I've created a new Virtual Machine to play with the new features available within PHP5.4. I wrote a post with the most exciting features (at least for me) when I saw the feature list in the alpha version. Now the Release Candidate is with us, so it's the time of start playing with them. I also discover really cool features that I pass over in my first review.

Code snippets are included for each example for:

  • Class member access on instantiation
  • Short array syntax
  • Support for Class::{expr}() syntax
  • Indirect method call through array
  • Callable typehint
  • Traits
  • Array dereferencing support

He points to this other post for a complete list of what's been added in 5.4.
