Posted by JimL (JimL), 17 August 2006Whilst visiting PHP.NET I noticed a headline saying "PHP 4.4.3 Released".
I thought the latest version was 5.1.4
Could someone explain what's going on and which version is which?
Posted by Chris_Isaac (Chris Isaac), 17 August 2006Hi
I *think* they are currently supporting both the stable 4.?? versions as well as the 5.?? new version of PHP.
Then again I *think* the earth is flat and umpalumpas really do exist so it may be worth waiting for Graham to answer
Hope this helps.
Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 17 August 2006Graham confirms that Chris's thoughts are right ...
The 5.1.x releases are the latest and greatest. However, there are a couple of compatability issues between 4 and 5, and there's also the unbundling of things like the MySQL drivers, so a lot of ISPs and shared server providers are still running 4.x.x on their legacy systems .... probably will be for a very long time. Upgrades to 4.x.x will be minimal in new facilities - typically fixing security holes ...
Posted by JimL (JimL), 18 August 2006Many thanks to Graham for his wisdom and Chris for his umpalumpas.
