How to create a zip archive using PHP
Jul 03, 2007 @ 11:08:00

On the JSLabs blog today, there's a (short) new tutorial showing an alternate method to creating a Zip archive in PHP (rather than with the zip extension).

He illustrates the creation of simple archive that pulls in a test file from a given path. This is then pushed into the zip archive and packed down and exported. He also notes the different compression levels that it can be created with - no compression, bzipped and gzipped.

You can download the library here.

5.2.1 RC3 Released for testing
Jan 19, 2007 @ 07:16:46

Ilia Alshanetsky has posted the announcement about the release of the latest Release Candidate for the upcoming PHP 5.2.x series - PHP 5.2.1 RC3.

Since the last release, there are over 20 different bug fixes resolving some annoying engine issues such as the tempval leak inside foreach(). We do not anticipate any regressions to be introduced by this RC, but I would still like to ask everyone to take a few minutes and test it against their code base. If you come across any issues please report them at http://bugs.php.net/.

You can download these latest files here:

Depending on how stable things run with this release, it might be the last Release Candidate for the series. A final release might be coming soon - so get out there and run those tests!
