Andrei Zmievski's Blog:
Sara (Golemon) joins Yahoo!
July 11, 2006 @ 06:12:13

In his latest post, Andrei Zmievski notes something that might have slipped through the cracks, but is still worth nothing. Sara Golemon, author of the recently released "Extending and Embedding PHP" book from Sam's Publishing, is joining up with the group at Yahoo!

She notes in her blog entry:

After well over half a decade at the University of California at Berkeley, I'm moving on to greener pastures. Well, maybe not greener (Berkeley is full of evergreens and...other verdant plant substances), but pastures at the very least. Next monday, my life's journy will bring me to that farmland come technopolis known the world over as Silicon Valley. I'll be cubefarming private sector style for one of the few dotcom survivors, a little mom & pop outfit called Yahoo!.

Many congrats to Sara, author of runkit, classkit, ssh2, and other PECL packages as well as a regular contributor to PHP core - enjoy life at the new job and have fun working in the Search & Marketplace Group!

Zend Weekly Summary:
safe_mode is gone
March 02, 2006 @ 06:31:55

As pointed out by Ligaya Turmelle in this blog post today, it seems that safe_mode in PHP is officially "gone".

From this Zend Weekly Summary:

Following the Paris PDM recommendations, and (unusually) with the approval of the entire spectrum of PHP developers and users, Andi went to work on removing safe_mode from CVS HEAD this week. He got as far as the streams code before he hit a problem, and wrote to Sara (for help).

Sara agreed that it was in fact a bug, and admitted that she'd probably introduced this 'slight logic twist' when routing unlink() to use stream wrappers.

Andi thanked Sara for her analysis and asked her to keep an eye on his commits to ensure he didn't apply a wrong fix in the stream wrapper code. She did; he didn't. Andi went on to clean all trace of the safe_mode implementation from the rest of the PHP core and most of the core extensions, ably assisted by Ilia.

One of the longest-lingering, painful issues that PHP has had to deal with in the past has finally been laid to rest. Here's to a positive step forward to PHP6!
