Stuart Herbert's Blog:
PHP 5 Stabilisation Re-visited
January 02, 2006 @ 16:28:46

On Stuart Herbert's blog, there's a new post with his look at the PHP implementation with in the structure of the Gentoo linux distribution.

We're three months after our original planned date of the 8th October 2005 for stabilising PHP 5 on Gentoo. Until we do stabilise, the PHP Herd encourages everyone to use the unstable dev-lang/php packages, either from Portage, or the very latest packages from the Gentoo PHP Overlay. The PHP Herd already considers the old-style PHP packages (dev-php/php et al) obsolete - and the sooner we can finally get rid of them the happier we will be.

I can't give you a timetable for when this will be done, as it's not the PHP Herd that does the stabilising [...] the PHP Herd hasalready stopped supporting the dev-php/php style packages (we all use dev-lang/php). January 2006 is a great month to start switching to dev-lang/php, if you haven't done so already!

It's mainly a message to end-users out there looking for information on the PHP support in this OS. It's wonderful to see the progress that's being made to keep one of the more popular linux distributions up-to-date in the realm of PHP...
