Johannes Schlüter:
PHP 5.5 is out, what's up with 5.4 and 5.3?
June 24, 2013 @ 09:25:47

Johannes Schlüter has a new post for those wondering what's going to happen to PHP 5.3 and 5.4 now that PHP 5.5 has been released.

Yay, finally we released PHP 5.5, which is a new big release for PHP. In preparation for this I yesterday sent out a mail to the PHP core developers stating that the "PHP-5.3 BRANCH IS CLOSED NOW" [...] What this means for users of PHP is that they can continue using PHP 5.3 and when upgrades come they are very low risk of breaking anything (we always try not to break anything, but any person's bug might be another person's feature) so they should be applicable easily and applied fast.

So, PHP 5.3 users can upgrade in the 5.3.x series without having to worry too much about breakage. PHP 5.4 users should be able to easily upgrade to 5.5 without many issues too: "PHP 5.5 also mostly uses the same code as 5.4 with a few extra features."

Lately in PHP, Episode 31 - The Urge to Kill Older PHP Versions
January 14, 2013 @ 10:58:16

PHPClasses.org has released their latest episode of their "Lately in PHP" podcast series. This episode (#31) talks some about some of the changes happening in versions in PHP in the upcoming months.

As PHP 5.5 is getting ready to be released in the next months, the end of line for PHP 5.3 is being planned, while the original MySQL extension is being deprecated in PHP 5.5 to be killed in a later version.

You can listen to this latest episode either through the in-page player, by downloading the mp3 or you can watch the video of the recorded Google Hangout of the taping.

Greg Beaver's Blog:
Be careful of PEAR 1.4.4 and older installs when uninstalling a package
December 19, 2006 @ 09:45:00

Greg Beaver has a warning for those developers using an older version of PEAR (1.4.4 and older) and uninstalling packages - a bug that might cause issues from an unauthorized uninstallation.

Recently, a curious bug was opened at pear.php.net for the PEAR package (#9639). In it, a user was able to uninstall the Structures_DataGrid package, even though all of its subpackages were installed, which should have prevented uninstallation.

There's been a key update to the dependency module that keeps this sort of thing from happening, but it's only in versions 1.4.5 and higher. Greg also recommends the reinstall of any packages that you've installed before and up to version 1.4.4 just to ensure that the dependency database is up to date.
