An era has come to an end as we say goodbye to PHP4 today! The official support for PHP4 has now been dropped, and the branch was ended with the release of PHP 4.4.9 yesterday. Reading through Derick’s post about the end of PHP4, I actually got quite a bit nostalgic. All the main release points for the PHP4 series (except for PHP 4.4.x which I’ve never spent any time worth mentioning with) includes things that we rely on each and every day today.
Here’s to the same trend for PHP5 when we look back when PHP6 has been released and spent a couple of years in the wild (although I can say quite a few things I’d never live without from PHP5 already..).
BTW: Christian also notes why you should be afraid if you’re considering installing the new PHP version.
