Re: PHP 4 - R.I.P.



Davis,

If you are talking about centos you have two things to consider:
a) RHES/Centos 5 already comes with php 5.
b) RHES/Centos 4 does not and will not have due to the way things are
planned.   Since PHP5 has some issues with backward compatibility they will
not replace the package.

Is Red Hat going to finally support PHP 5 now?  I had to compile 5 from
source and updates via up2date are non-existent until RH supports it.

PHP 4 end of life announcement


[13-Jul-2007]

Today it is exactly three years ago since PHP 5 has been released. In
those three years it has seen many improvements over PHP 4. PHP 5 is fast,
stable & production-ready and as PHP 6 is on the way, PHP 4 will be
discontinued.

The PHP development team hereby announces that support for PHP 4 will
continue until the end of this year only. After 2007-12-31 there will be no
more releases of PHP 4.4. We will continue to make critical security fixes
available on a case-by-case basis until 2008-08-08. Please use the rest of
this year to make your application suitable to run on PHP 5.

For documentation on migration for PHP 4 to PHP 5, we would like to point
you to our migration guide <http://www.php.net/manual/en/migration5.php> .
There is additional information available in the PHP 5.0 to PHP 5.1 <
http://www.php.net/manual/en/migration51.php>  and PHP 5.1 to PHP 5.2 <
http://www.php.net/manual/en/migration52.php>  migration guides as well.





Thanks,



jared davis.
