PHP.net news & announcements

The PHP development team would like to announce the immediate availability of PHP 5.3.8. This release fixes two issues introduced in the PHP 5.3.7 release:

  • Fixed bug #55439 (crypt() returns only the salt for MD5)
  • Reverted a change in timeout handling restoring PHP 5.3.6 behavior, which caused mysqlnd SSL connections to hang (Bug #55283).

All PHP users should note that the PHP 5.2 series is NOT supported anymore. All users are strongly encouraged to upgrade to PHP 5.3.8.

For a full list of changes in PHP 5.3.8, see the ChangeLog. For source downloads please visit our downloads page, Windows binaries can be found on windows.php.net/download/.
