+ - PHP 5.4 A Major Update Designed to Help Forget 6.0-> 2

Submitted by mikejuk
mikejuk (1801200) writes "PHP 5.4 has been released along with a new version of Zend Framework. It has it a number of optimizations that make it faster and smaller (early estimates say 10 to 20% faster), a built-in webserver for testing purposes, and features that had been destined for PHP 6.0.
The big addition from the now crashed PHP 6.0 project is Traits which are sort of a cross between a class and an interface and brings some of the advantages of multiple inheritance to PHP.
A good question is what happens when 5.4 evolves its way to 6.0? Will it have to be called 6(2) or something?"

      Software versioning is the process of assigning either unique version names or unique version numbers to unique states of computer software. Within a given version number category (major, minor), these numbers are generally assigned in increasing order and correspond to new developments in the software. At a fine-grained level, revision control is often used for keep
