PHP 4.4 Ends It’s Life

« »

PHP has rung the death knell for PHP 4, announcing today that PHP has reached it’s effective end of life.

PHP 4 was a great improvement in PHP, allowing for a number of important features that made PHP a great language, including instituting superglobals like $_SESSION and $_POST, implementing the CLI and CGI, and object oriented programming (such as it was). But with all software, it has reached its effetive end of life, and has been retired.

For those in the DC Metropolitan Area, there is a special wake tonight for PHP 4 where we’ll share our most horrific PHP 4 battle stories. We’re meeting at Four Courts at 2051 Wilson Blvd. Arlington, VA 2220 at 6:00 PM. Look for a bunch of PHP people.
