Hello all. This is just a quick email with a few announcements about the OpenSRS PHP client project.
NEW MAILING LIST
I've set up a mailing list to track chagnes to the CVS for the project. Why? Well, mainly because I think it's a bit silly to release tarballs for every minor change I make to the code, even if the change improves things (as I was doing with the timeout problems).
Also, if the changes I make are more obvious to you (the users), then it should be simpler for you to either a) make the changes to your source code, b) comment on my changes, or -- best of all -- c) make suggestions for improvement!
So, from now on, I'll only release a new tarball when I think it is warranted. Of course, I'm releasing one right now which incorporates the timeout fixes, and the new version number (see
the last item below).
You are all encouraged to sign up to the CVS mailing list here:
NEW VERSION OF THE PERL CLIENT CODE: v2.2.2
An unofficial, unsupported version of the client code has been released by OpenSRS. I haven't had a chance to look at it yet, but I believe this is the version that is meant to support multi-lingual domain registrations.
Rest assured that I will update the PHP class to incorporate these new features as soon as I can. :)
As of the next release of the PHP class, I will switch to a new numbering scheme that is more in line with the official numbering scheme used by OpenSRS.
So, instead of version 0.9.3 of the PHP class being equivalent to the 2.2.1 version of the Perl class, the PHP class version number will match the Perl class. This will start today with
a release of 2.2.1.
As always, I'm open to suggestions/compliments/criticism.
