Вышел PHP 4.0 beta 1.
- The Zend Engine (new language features, such as reference counting, enhanced objects support, a new boolean type and extendibility)
- Server Abstraction Layer (PHP 4.0 has no server-specific code in any of its parts...)
- HTTP Sessions support
- Generalized Build Process, under UNIX (..future betas will allow you to easily build PHP modules dynamically)
- Easier and more powerful configuration (directives available in php.ini (formerly php3.ini) can now be controlled at runtime, through Apache configuration/win registry).
Раздают в исходниках и binaries для Win32.
