    Yup, I saw this too, and I'm quite surprised the PHP group has even made it to the beta stage this quickly. I'm quite optimistic for PHP 5, especially with all the new additions to it's OOP implementation.

    I'll give it a shot on my box when I get some time.

    Damn shame about mySQL though... Now we have the trouble of configuring it with PHP ourselves now... And I don't want to know about SQLite either

    Anyone got any docs on the new XML/XSLT support? As it didn't choke when I compiled DOM or Sablot in - but there ain't no functions there for either to work with. Can't find any info on simplexml either.

    Look upon it as an oppurtunity to try out a much better database. Like Postgres, which REALLY should be where mySQL is today, in my opinion.

    I've been running PHP5 for about 2 months now. If you are installing it on Windows, the installation instructions are wrong, it should be php5_module, not php4_module.

    Edit:


    Does anyone know how to use MySQL in this version? Is there an extension or something available, or nothing?

    Can someone expand on what the MySQL licensing issue is with PHP 5 and what impact it may have to developers.

    Thanks.

    PHP's Open Source license is not listed as one of the license types allowed to use MySQL for free under their new license.

    I've found out that the mysql extension is now included in the Windows snapshot builds... however, there has not been a successful build for 2 days... lol.

    Postgresql is an excellant DB, mucho better than mySQL IMHO.

    Anyone any hints/ideas on my XML/XSLT issue?

    Sorry, no idea on the XML/XSLT, maybe try asking the developers at Zend. They have been answering a lot of questions lately

    I have been using PHP5 for a good 3+ months and I quite like it, unfortunately the source has been broken for quite a while but it sounds like it's working again so I'll have to get a copy to have a play with
