PHP5.3 Nearly Upon Us

Looking forward to anonymous functions, not very interested in namespaces (that's a lie, I'm not interested in the declaring of namespaces).

Going to see about compiling the release candidate now :D

Also, PHPGTK2 is awesome!

Damn it. Cannot compile GTK2 with PHP5.3 :(

I guess this thread shouldn't be in Misc Questions. Nowhere else seems appropriate, though.

What?!
There is a release candidate out?
Why was I not informed! :P

But yea, I'm looking forward to the namespaces. I'm going to have a lot of fun organizing my code with that! :D
The anonymous functions to. Kind of a JavaScript vibe going on there.

Also, the new MySQL native driver sounds like a nice addition.

Yeah, it all looks pretty sweet. I'm not sure what PHP6 will bring that 5.3 won't? I don't see any differences.

Anyway, having a native driver (for mysql) makes sense - it's the most commonly used database tool in PHP.

Whoot, Nice!
I'm going to have fun installing that on my test server tonight :-D

Don't think there are many Linux binaries available so soon tho. Probably going to have to build it from source. (Which I such at :-P)

I hope the ISPs don't wait too long with updating PHP on their servers.
