The PHP development team has announced the immediate availability of PHP 5.4.0. This release is a major leap forward in the 5.x series, which includes a large number of new features and bug fixes.
Some of the key new features include: traits, a shortened array syntax, a built-in webserver for testing purposes and more. PHP 5.4.0 significantly improves performance, memory footprint and fixes over 100 bugs.
For users upgrading from PHP 5.3 there is a migration guide available, detailing the changes between those releases and PHP 5.4.0.
Some time ago I wrote an article about Server2Go’s release 1.8.0. The article had little success, compared to the high number of hits other articles I write usually get. When the fix version 1.8.1 was released I really doubted to spend some time writing about it; after all, you write not only to give your thought some form, but also to appeal your readers.
Anyway I’m sitting here, still writing about it. I think, the major problem with this wonderful product is that it is simply too good. It is such a powerful tool, that only few understand, how valuable it is to have a complete web application on a local server, even on your pendrive. The average user hasn’t understood the power of portable apps yet. Until they get to that level of understanding, a portable webserver is still rocket science. Sites like PortableApps.com need to make a lot of effort to show the importance of a pluggable application that does not require any installation at all. The same goes for CD/DVD distributions of dynamically-generated information, PHP+ MySQL web applications, etc. It is still rocket science for the average Windows user.
