The following is a list of 20 extensions that should make your life easier and save you a fair bit of time.

Nexen.net:
PHPInfo() Stats - Part 2
November 21, 2006 @ 10:51:00

Damien Seguy has continued his series looking at PHP configurations around the web and is sharing the results in the form of two new reports over on Nexen.net.

I just published the second part of the serie about PHP configurations. This part focuses on three aspects of PHP: PHP extensions, PHP streams, and disabled functions.

You can find the statistics themselves here and the latest configuration statistics here. It's interesting to see the drop-off when it comes to the various modules that are installed ("php, ftp and http are the most common. Besides them, tough luck.") and to see the somewhat more gradual curve of which functions are disabled - with system() topping out the list (with good reason).

Ilia Alshanetsky's Blog:
PHP 5.2.0 RC1 Released!
July 24, 2006 @ 13:55:42

Ilia Alshanetsky notes in this new post on his blog today that the latest release candidate of the PHP 5.x series has been released - PHP 5.2.0 RC1.

Given that it took a few months to reach this point and addition of new features was allowed the changelog already looks extremely impressive.

Some of the key changes include things like 3 new extensions (filter, json and zip), the date extension had the rest of its functionality enabled, much work was done in terms of getting PHP 5.2 to run faster and more efficiently (in terms on memory usage). There have also been nearly 80 bug fixes made to existing functionality, which hopefully translates to a more stable release.

This latest edition can be downloaded from:

And, as ususal, testing and feedback is definitely requested to help work out as many kinks as possible.

Jeremy Johnstone has a quick post with details on his talk he's been invited to give at this year's O'Reilly Open Source COnvention.

His topic will be "Writing Your Own PHP Extensions: How & Why from A-Z" and will be presented as a beginner's guide to creating these expansions on the PHP core. It will explain the "whys" and where to get started as well as some resources and other materials on where to go from there. Some basic code will be provided to get your feet wet and provide a base to work from.

For more information on the talks being given for this year's conference, check out the sessions list and to narrow it down to just the PHP related talks, check out this. Other speakers covering PHP-related topics include Chris Shiflett, George Schlossnagle, Andrei Zmievski, and Rasmus Lerdorf.
