's blog today, there's an announcement about the release of the latest version of PEAR
- version 1.4.7
PEAR version 1.4.7 has been released at pear.php.net, this is a recommended upgrade for all folks. Particularly important is anyone who is trying to do RPM packaging using the --packagingroot option (remember --installroot is for people who wish to create a workable version of PEAR in the installroot directory, --packagingroot is for those who wish to create a fake installation for RPM purposes). Also, Tim Jackson's PEAR_Command_Packaging package has been introduced to solve the issues in the makerpm command, and we welcome both Bertand Gugger and Tim Jackson as helpers to the PEAR package itself.
Other updates include the implementation of a --CLEAN-section in .phpt files, run-tests for PHPUnit-based tests, and loads of bug fixes. Check out this latest update and all of the new features over on the PEAR website...
