PHP 4 end of life announcement

[13-Jul-2007]

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.

For documentation on migration for PHP 4 to PHP 5, we would like to point you to our migration guide. There is additional information available in the PHP 5.0 to PHP 5.1 and PHP 5.1 to PHP 5.2 migration guides as well.

Among many other suggestions made by different people there were parodies of other operating system logos, sharks or even eagles. You can find them here. Some of them:

The requested operation requires elevation in Windows Vista

THANKS GaSKELL.ORG!!!!

So I??ve been using Vista for a few weeks now and for whatever crazy reason I decided I needed to flush dns. I received this message: ??The requested operation requires elevation?. Okay, to get around this go to All Programs, Accessories, right click Command Prompt and click Run as administrator. Good to go!

Update:
I??ve been running Vista for quite some time now and finally got fed up with User Account Control (UAC). What UAC really turns into is security by nagging so I disabled it altogether. To disable UAC open the Control Panel/User Accounts then click Turn User Account Control on or off. Uncheck the box. Click OK.

And… amin! VISTA BITE THE DUST!!! Another customer happy 😉
