Windows PECL binaries
December 10, 2008 @ 16:10:56

The main PHP.net site has a post with some unfortunate news about the Windows PECL repository:

Due to unfortunate circumstances Windows binaries for PECL extensions will no longer be available on http://pecl4win.php.net. Work is being done to incorporate Windows binaries for PECL extensions into pecl.php.net and will hopefully be ready early 2009.

If you are interested in helping out on the project, join up on PHP Windows Development mailing list.

PECL on Windows - Yes I'm odd
May 24, 2007 @ 07:54:00

In a new post on her blog today, Elizabeth Smith talks about her "PECL Windows nut project" of wanting to get every single PECL extension she can get her hands on to compile under Windows.

Now there will be some that are just frankly impossible (but there are some extensions that are impossible on *nix as well - you're not going to see me messing with xmms) What does this mean? Playing with lots of open source libraries, fixing simple errors, creating config.w32 files for extensions. Basically just looking at what is broken and fixing it.

She's already started on the project, fixing several of the base extensions and moving on to try to correct one to five extensions a day. These changes are getting committed into CVS so anyone can get at them and try them out for themselves. She's also trying to get them over into the PECL4WIN packages to make things more "official".

February 02, 2007 @ 17:23:00

Christopher Jones has posted a quick update for PHP and Oracle users out there about an update to the latest Oracle PECL package.

Quick heads-up that Antony Dovgal has released the oci8 1.2.3 patch to PECL. Edin Kadribasic has published the corresponding Windows binaries on pecl4win. See the changenote for, well - changes.

Updates in this new release include:

  • a fix when fetching NULL values using oci_bind_array_by_name
  • correcting when the type argument of oci_define_by_name() is ignored
  • oci_bind_array_by_name doesn't work on Solaris 64bit
  • issue in php_oci_statement_fetch with more than one piecewise column
You can download the pacakge here.

Upload Progress Meter for Windows
December 06, 2006 @ 10:29:00

Christian Stocker has an update on his blog today that Windows users will be happy to hear:

Frank Kromann applied some patches yesterday to the PECL sources of the uploadprogress extension to make it compile under Windows (almost the same as by SteveH provided in a comment of my post yesterday). Therefore, thanks to the pecl4win site, a compiled dll is now already available. Get it here (untested by me..)

He also mentions some documentation that was asked about concerning the package (and the patches), but notes that he "can't promise anything any time soon".

Package Updates - Zip & htscanner
December 04, 2006 @ 10:39:00

Pierre-Alain Joye has posted several new updates concerning the packages he works on - Zip and a new offering, htscanner.

The first two concern the htscanner package - first, the initial release of the extension that works to emulate htaccess support for non-Apache web servers (like FastCGI or lighttpd). The second related post notes that that Windows binaries for the functionality are also posted on the pecl4win website.

Next on his list were some update to the Zip PECL package, a fix to correct issues found when using PHP versions 5.1.0, 5.1.1, and 5.1.2 (due to an internal function name issue).

PECL4WIN Build Box Dead
November 14, 2006 @ 16:38:00

Some unfortunate news from Edin Kadribasic to be felt particularly by the Windows PHP users out there - the box that hosts the PECL packages for Windows has suffered a bit from a power failure.

The power failures are very rare in Denmark, but nonetheless this one managed to take out the build box. The website itself is not affected, but there are no updates for the time being.

The PECL4WIN project hosts a repository of PECL extensions precompiled for the Windows platform. The packaging and distribution system used by PECL is shared with its sister, PEAR.

UPDATE (11.15.2006) - The box is back up and working at 100% again (faulty memory was to blame). A new build has already been created.

PECL4WIN adds whole branch dowloads
August 14, 2006 @ 07:48:29

Edin Kadribasic has a quick note today about an update made to the Pecl4Win site concerning the download of branches.

Several people have mailed me asking if it was possible to download all Pecl4Win extensions for a given branch at once. Now that is possible from the branches page of the Pecl4Win site.

He also thanks the latest version of the zip extension (now beta) for making this multiple download possible.

Finally... Pecl4Win with php5.2
August 11, 2006 @ 07:15:35

From Elizabeth Smith's blog today, there's some of her comments on a recetly added feature to the upcoming PHP 5.2 version - the inclusion of the Pecl4Win functionality.

Snaps of php are something I use all the time - heck for a long while the php 5.1 snaps were more stable then the official 5.0 releases (that was a weird time). And then they came up with the very lovely Pecl4Win (which I frequent all the time :) However, there is a snag in the system. As I grouched about in an earlier post there were no php 5.2 branch snaps available.

And today as if by magic 5.2 branch compiles start - HURRAY.

She notes having to downgrade her install to get things working correctly, but it's not a difficult process. She also includes a specific issue she had with the "unresolved external symbol _zend_memory_peak_usage is xdebug's problem".
