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.
