Seven year's service


The popular PhP 4 software that lets servers create customized Web pages such as online catalog pages or a list of search results is about to be killed off. The development team for the project have announced that they will only be supporting it until the end of the year and will only make critical security fixes available on a case-by-case basis until next year.

PhP 5 has been out for three years and project programmers say they are more interested in PHP 6 which is set to launch soon. According to not everyone is that happy to say good bye to PHP 4.

From an adoption point of view PHP 5 was not as popular, although the PHP development team dispute that. Yahoo and Facebook, two prominent PHP users, have moved to PHP 5, Gutmans said, in part because of better performance.
