dopo un bel po’ di mesi di attesa è stata finalmente rilasciata la beta 2 di php 5.0 ecco il comunicato ufficiale:
PHP 5.0.0 Beta 2 has been released. This is the first feature complete version of PHP 5, and we recommend for PHP users to try it. PHP 5 is still not ready for production use!
Some of the more major changes include:
* PHP 5 features the Zend Engine 2.
* XML support has been completely redone in PHP 5, all extensions are now focused around the excellent libxml2 library (http://www.xmlsoft.org/).
* SQLite has been bundled with PHP. For more information on SQLite, please visit their website.
* A new SimpleXML extension for easily accessing and manipulating XML as PHP objects. It can also interface with the DOM extension and vice-versa.
* Streams have been greatly improved, including the ability to access low-level socket operations on streams.
sempre per restare in tema è stata rilasciata anche la release candidate 3 di PHP 4.3.4
