PHP 4 On The Way Out
Deprecated: Function eregi() is deprecated in /nfs/c02/h06/mnt/46791/domains/thewrongadvices.com/html/wp-content/plugins/tpbc.php on line 96
The PHP group have announced they are ending development and support for PHP 4 at the end of this year.
There will be no further releases of PHP 4.4 after the 31st December 2007, but they plan to continue making critical security fixes till August 2008.
Considering the poor uptake of PHP 5 and the fact there is no definitive release date for PHP 6, this announcement seems a little premature.
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.
