The PHP development team is proud to announce the second release candidate of PHP 5.4. PHP 5.4 includes new language features and removes several legacy (deprecated) behaviours. Windows binaries can be downloaded from the Windows QA site.

THIS IS A RELEASE CANDIDATE - DO NOT USE IT IN PRODUCTION!.

This is the second release candidate. The release candidate phase is intended as a period of bug fixing prior to the stable release. No new features should be included before the final version of PHP 5.4.0.

Changes since the previous release candidate include:

  • Further bug fixes in the built-in web server.
  • PHP-FPM is no longer marked as EXPERIMENTAL.
  • Several improvements and bug fixes in the Zend Engine, Core and other extensions.

Read the NEWS file for a complete list of changes in this release.

Please continue to help us to identify bugs in order to ensure that the release is solid and all things behave as expected. Please test this release candidate against your code base and report any problems that you encounter to the QA mailing list and/or the PHP bug tracker.
