Damien Seguy of Nexen.net is back again this month with the latest usage statistics for our favorite language for the month of May 2006.
Some of the highlights he mentions for this month include:
- a move by PHP 4.4.2 towards becoming the dominant PHP version in use by June 2006
- PHP 5.1.2 rules the PHP 5 world
- PHP 5's adoption went up again, another 8% (and is being adopted at a greater rate now as well)
- PHP 4.3.9 and older are still alive and kicking with 46% of the share of hosts/domains still using one of them.
For each of the types of stats gathered, there are graphs and charts to make quick viewing possible - some of which are a little surprising. It's always interesting to me to see the "adoption by country" map's results, a good reminder that PHP is everywhere and is definitely being used.
Also, be sure to check out the PHP's evolution results for data on the actual language's current state.
