Andrew Podner:
PHP 5.5 Preview New Password Hashing API
March 25, 2013 @ 12:32:26

Andrew Podner has posted about the password hashing functionality that's coming with PHP 5.5 - how it will work and some of the benefits of its use.

Recently PHP 5.5 was released into beta, which puts us one step closer to another release of PHP. This week, I thought I would spend a little time explaining a new feature that will be implemented in 5.5 that will hopefully make dealing with passwords easier for developers to grasp and properly implement. I cannot tell you the number of apps, even ones written within the last year or so, that I open up only to find either an md5 hash, or worse, clear text password storage. I keep telling myself that eventually this will come to an end, and people will stop taking the easy way out. Maybe PHP 5.5 will have made it so easy that there is simply no further excuse not to implement solid password hashing.

He includes an example of the four new functions that will come with the hashing functionality: password_get_info, password_hash, password_needs_rehash and password_verify. He includes the parameters that should be included in each call and the details from the call to get the hash's info. If you're not going to be able to move up to PHP 5.5 when it's released, you might consider looking into this compatibility library to have a similar interface and functionality (for 5.3.7 or greater).

PHP 5.5.0 Alpha6 released
March 08, 2013 @ 09:02:18

As is mentioned in this new post to PHP.net today, they've released the latest alpha for the PHP 5.5.x series - PHP 5.5.0alpha6 - for testing. This is not a stable release so do not use it in production by any means.

The PHP development team announces the release of PHP 5.5.0alpha6. This release fixes some bugs from alpha5. It also serves as a delay for our next release, beta1, integrating ZendOptimizer+ OPCode cache which is not ready yet to be merged. All users of PHP are encouraged to test this version carefully, and report any bugs in the bug tracking system.

Updates in this release include a fix for a bug where uninitialized ++$foo->bar; does not cause a notice, an update to the bundled PCRE 8.32, and a bugfix in ext/sockets where sendmsg/recvmsg shutdown handler causes segfault. You can get the complete list of changes here and get the download over on this site (Windows users here).

Chris Hartjes' Blog:
Preview of "Refactoring Legacy Applications using CakePHP"
January 19, 2009 @ 09:30:26

Chris Hartjes, a guru of CakePHP knowledge, is putting together a book - "Refactoring Legacy Applications Using CakePHP".

Some of you may know that I have started writing a e-book about CakePHP. I'm planning on publishing it myself for the low, low price of $7. I thought I'd let people take a sneak peek at how it looks so far by publishing the first two chapters in very rough form.

You can find a rough draft here (pdf). Keep an eye out on Chris' blog for more (possible) preview releases and for the final product once its wrapped.

Aptana PHP 1.0 Released - Free PHP IDE
December 15, 2008 @ 11:14:18

Ian Selby has posted a look at the newly released PHP support by the Aptana software:

Aptana (yes, this is a shameless plug) released version 1.0 of its PHP support yesterday, and it is something that you should definitely check out. Prior to working at Aptana, I was an avid user of Zend Studio, and Coda, simply because those were the best PHP IDEs as far as I was concerned. Over the past few months, however, we've been hard at work on the PHP support for Aptana Studio, and I can say with much confidence that it is in every way as good as every other PHP IDE out there, and better than some in other respects.

He talks about new features like content assist (adding userland code to the automatic completion), completion of functions with parameters already filled in and a PHP preview server and debugger built right in. You can get more information on the Aptana website.
