PHP 5 pasa de Beta4 a RC1

La noticia es ya del 18 de marzo pero yo me acabo de enterar por la web de sephiroth. Según el web site de php:

The first Release Candidate of PHP 5 is finally here! The move from Beta stage to RC stage means that PHP 5 is now feature complete, and is quite stable – stable enough for everyone to start playing with. Note that it is still not recommended for mission-critical use.

Some of the key features of PHP 5 include:

  • The Zend Engine II with a new object model and dozens of new features.
  • XML support has been completely redone in PHP 5, all extensions are now focused around the excellent libxml2 library (http://www.xmlsoft.org/).
  • A new MySQL extension named MySQLi for developers using MySQL 4.1 and later. This new extension includes an object-oriented interface in addition to a traditional interface; as well as support for many of MySQL\’s new features, such as prepared statements.
  • SQLite has been bundled with PHP. For more information on SQLite, please visit their website.
  • A brand new built-in SOAP extension for interoperability with Web Services.
  • A new SimpleXML extension for easily accessing and manipulating XML as PHP objects. It can also interface with the DOM extension and vice-versa.
  • Streams have been greatly improved, including the ability to access low-level socket operations on streams.
    And lots more…
