|Posted by: AceBHound on Jul 15th, 2007 10:43 AM|
|Just over three years since PHP5 has been released, the PHP Development team has announced they will not be releasing any further PHP4 updates after the end of this year. Security patches for PHP4 will then cease after August 2008.
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.
