PHP 5.4 is Here! What You Must Know
Mar 06, 2012 @ 10:24:48

NetTuts.com has posted their own "what you must know" about the recently released (major) upgrade to the PHP language - PHP 5.4.

PHP 5.4 is here; the next major step forward since version 5.3 – keeping PHP 6 (full Unicode support) on hold for now. The latest enhancements significantly improve its elegance, while removing deprecated functionality, resulting in a dramatic optimization of the runtime (up to 20% more speed and memory usage reduction).

They hit all of the highlights:

  • Traits
  • Built-in CLI Web-Server
  • Shorter Array Syntax
  • Array Dereferencing
  • $this In Anonymous Functions
  • <?= is Always On
  • Binary Number Representation
  • Callable Typehint
  • Initialized High Precision Timer

Code examples are provided where relevant.

PHP5 - a big failure?
Feb 17, 2006 @ 06:44:26

New today from Gabriele Farina on Sephiroth.it, there's a post that asks the question, "Is PHP5 a big failure?"

PHP 5 has been presented as a revolution, a lot of new features have been added and a lot of projects have been made. But only a small group of hosters seem interested in supporting PHP 5 on their web servers. It is not so useful to have a beautiful programming language to use if we can't apply it to production environments.

We MUST use PHP 5 to help it growing until it become the standard...

PHP5 has seen a pretty slow adoption rate so far, but according to some statistics, its usage has been picking up lately - even among hosting providers.
