php 5

Post by NickeZ »

I was wondering if there will be any support in php 5?

search but didn't find any answers

and btw noticed that if you write something wrong when you register only the first pw-field becomes empty.. perhaps on purpose... but hey i can always bring it up=)

sorry for asking a frequently asked question.. but you could expand the "Will phpBB 2.2 be able to do X, Y & Z?" section in the FAQ...

php 5.1 is currently at beta 3. I don't know all of the changes in it but I think Olympus would be able to run on 5.1.

PHP 6 just branched off in the last week or two...far too early to tell what effect that will have on backwards compatibility (although it doesn't look all that good). I wouldn't expect PHP6 to go gold though for at least a couple years.

PHP 5.1 on the other hand, will probably be out before Olympus, and does break one or two features from what I can tell...minor though. (so far) :)

Jelly, I run beta 3 on my sandbox for my branch of phpBB 3. It works fine. I know for a fact that the big boys also dev mostly in php 5 because they used a php 5 only feature once. (It was Meik if I remember correctly)

Some developers expressed their wish to release PHP6 this year, but I think and hope that won't happen so you are probably correct ;-)
