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 (
* 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.

There have been many changes since Beta 1, some of them documented in the NEWS file and most language changes are documented on our PHP 5/Zend Engine 2 page.

sempre per restare in tema è stata rilasciata anche la release candidate 3 di PHP 4.3.4
