Antony Dovgal's Blog:
5.3 snapshots are available
February 28, 2008 @ 09:33:00

Antony Dovgal points out that Derick Rethans has added the snapshots for PHP 5.3 to the snaps.php.net website.

Short list of what you can find there: Namespaces, __callstatic() magic method, accessing static members through $foo::myFunc(), fully rewritten ini-parser with .htaccess-like user defined ini files for CGI/FastCGI, improved OpenSSL extension, PCRE 7.4, and other fixes and improvements that will never get into 5_2 branch.

He recommends teching throughly before the major release to find all of the bug before the general public does. Builds for both source and Windows systems have been posted.

John Mertic's Blog:
Updates to the installer for PHP 5.2.3 and the new snaps site
June 06, 2007 @ 10:10:00

John Mertic points out two new things today, one related to the PHP installer and the other to the snaps website.

No major user-visible changes were made for this release [to the PHP installer], but all the problems people had with configuring IIS and Apache should have gone away with this release. I've made some changes to the builder so that it supports an installer for PHP 6, which should appear on snaps.php.net soon.

The announcement about the snaps website is the facelift it's gotten to make things more like the main PHP site and a bit easier to navigate to find the snapshot you want.

Edin Kadribasic's Blog:
New Windows Snaps/Release Builder
March 20, 2007 @ 08:18:00

Edin Kadribasic shares some great news on his blog this morning those using the PHP Windows builds will be happy to hear.

During my time at Emini I was using an old beat up machine to build PHP snapshots for Windows. It was only a Pentium II 400MHz and compiling a PHP snapshot on that machine took more than an hour. After leaving Emini I needed to find a new box for compiling PHP snapshots and PECL extensions for the Windows platform.

The light at the end of the tunnel came when Wez Furlong reminded him about a box OmniTI had that could handle just that. Now, what used to take over an hour to run takes around six minutes (a full compile of the latest snapshot with all of the extensions, including checkout and upload of the Win32 snapshot).

XJConfForPHP, the XML-to-object-mapper, Frank Kleine and me are working on is now available as a daily snapshot from snaps.php-tools.net.

XJConfForPHP is a "flexible solution to parse XML documents and create PHP data structures".

Elizabeth Smith's Blog:
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".
