David Coaller's Blog:
Namespaces part 1.2 Namespaces
November 08, 2007 @ 11:17:00

David Coaller has posted about a major change in the way namespaces will be implemented in the upcoming PHP 5.3 release - a change from using "import" to "use" for including a namespace in your code.

PHP Namespaces are no longer using the "import" keyword, this has been replaced to the keyword "use". Quite simple he ? There are a few reasons behind that move, but let's all drop the political reasons and say at least that many many projects in the open source world do use the import() function to do all sorts of weird imports, and it's just simpler to use "use".

He also links to the original email from Stanislav about the reasoning behind change. He's also updated his previous post to reflect the change.
