I saw in an older thread you thought it would take some time to do the loaders for PHP 5.3 since it adds to the core functionality. Just curious if you had an ETA for the loader updates now that PHP 5.3 has been out a few weeks?
By the way, when posting here if you hit "preview" and neglect to fill in the captcha image thingy, it gives a blank white screen. Very annoying, had to re-type this message (this time I'm copying/pasting to text editor)...
We'll have a look at the captcha. I've been to so many websites where I've lost text when trying to submit that I automatically do a select-all-copy operation just before submitting anything on the web these days. Takes me back to the days of my Mac-Plus and having to save literally every 5 minutes because the WriteNow Mac WP software I was using for a thesis would crash randomly.
We'll be releasing support for the new PHP language later in the year. I doubt that it's any intentional deception on the part of the PHP group to try and gain quicker acceptance of the new language with hosts than usually happens, but PHP 5.3 is really the new PHP 6.0 as it's not just a change of major proportions but a new version of the language with a new syntax and some incompatibility with previous versions of PHP 5. The forthcoming language that the PHP group are calling PHP 6 should really be PHP 7. _________________ Community Admin
