vfsStream 0.8.0 released
Note: This article was originally published at Planet PHP on 8 October 2010.
Another new feature is the support of .. in URLs, provided via patch by Guislain Duthieuw, which means you can now have constructs like vfs://root/path/../otherpath which is mapped to vfs://root/otherpath. However, realpath() still doesn't work - there is no way to make this work with how realpath() is currently implemented in PHP itself.
Besides this two bugs have been fixed, one where it was impossible until now to access a child of a directory via the vfsStream API if the child name is contained in the parent's name. The other one was an incomplete error message when you tried to access non-existing files on the root level.
You can get the new release via our pear channel.
