Dec 22, 2005 @ 11:06:23

On Ilia Alshanetsky's blog today, there's the announcement of the release of PHP 5.1.2RC1, the latest release candidate in the 5.1.2 series.

I've just packaged PHP 5.1.2RC1, the first release candidate for the next 5.1 version. A small holiday present for all PHP users, from the the PHP developers ;-). This is primarily a bug fixing release with its major points being:

  • Many fixes to the strtotime() function, over 10 bugs have been resolved.
  • A fair number of fixes to PDO and its drivers
  • New OCI8 that fixes large number of bugs backported from head.
  • A final fix for Apache 2 crash when SSI includes are being used.
  • A number of crash fixes in extensions and core components.
  • XMLwriter & Hash extensions were added and enabled by default.

Well, what are you waiting for? Get testing! The sooner those bugs are out, the closer we are to 5.1.2!
