PHP Magazine:
What Would You Like to See In PHP 6?
March 13, 2006 @ 07:41:50

PHP Magazine has posted their results from a poll they took after the "PHP Developers Meeting" that happened in Paris about what developers would like to see in PHP6.

Following release of the PHP Developers Meeting in Paris (November 11th and 12th, 2005), the International PHP Magazine polled the community to find out What they were looking our for, the most, in PHP 6?

The results of the poll suggest almost an equal weightage to all of the points noted in the developer meeting minutes. Of the 809 members polled, 15-20% of the respondents were looking out for OO functionality changes, functionality cleanup, performance boost, Security enhancements, and unicode support, in that order. Only 7% were keen to see additions made to the PHP engine. Less than 3% clicked on the "others" option.

The votes were pretty close, with "Functionality" only barely edging out "Performance Boost". "OO Functionality Changes", however, topped the list with points to spare.

Pierre's Blog:
Zip, complete rewrite and write mode added
March 06, 2006 @ 07:37:35

Pierre has posted about an update to his zip extension he created and added to the pecl repository. This version is a complete rewrite, and uses libzip instead of zzlib.

It is 100% backward compatible, you can use your old code transparently.

For PHP 5.1.x and up: Add create, modify and write support, from files or strings, stream support (read only), OO interface

For PHP 4.x and 5.0.x: Better zip read support, broken zip files with zzlib may now work smoothly.

For the old APIs, you can read the good old PHP manual. There is no documentation yet, but the examples contain all new features. It is the very first releases, consider it as alpha.

He reminds developers that feedback is always welcome, and that it can be downloaded directly from the pecl site.
