Hello PHP5!

Cheers to Simon Willison for the heads-up on this one – seems PHP5 has finally got past the Release Candidate stage and been released. This is quite a biggie for me, as I’m planning to write my weblog system (tentatively codenamed “Smidgen”) using plenty of nice object-oriented techniques, which PHP5’s Zend Engine bring in. (For your information, the majority of coding that I’ve actually been taught, as opposed to learned myself, has been in Java, hence the “clean coding is good, mmkay” mindset.) Oh, and quite possibly a nice bit of XML for extra buzzword-compliance.

I just hope that server admins can be persuaded to make the upgrade reasonably quickly…
