In this new post to his blog about the release of a new version of the OCI8 PECL extension - 1.3.5.
Last week Christopher Jones from Oracle pinged me about a patch I submitted a while back. The patch enables basic Oracle Instant Client detection during configure stage. The patch was meant to simplify install/upgrade of Pecl OCI8 module. After a number of revisions and improvements we have a working test version that will become OCI8 1.3.5.
