PHP 5.4 has just officially been release – and it’s a really big deal.
I’ve been tracking the development of PHP 5.4 since at least November of 2010 and the early alpha milestones. This is the first major PHP update since PHP 5.3 came out in June of 2009. In alot of ways though, the PHP 5.4 release is more important since it will be an evolutionary step forward that likely won’t require code rewrites.
