5.2.1 RC3 Released for testing
January 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/.

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!
