With the release of version 0.2.1a, Krumo is now PHP5 only. The old /trunk was branched under /branches/krumo-php4-php5, so if you are interested in the php4+php5 hybrid, you can use that branch. The support for that php4+php5 hybrid is now ceased.
The /trunk-php5only is now renamed to /trunk and will be used for the future development of this project. The first release from it is the 0.2.1a version of Krumo, which is PHP5-Only.
Since today there is a new trunk in the SVN repository called `trunk-php5only`. This is the trunk that contains the PHP5-only version of the project, and this is trunk that is going to be used for future development.
To take advantage of the many and amazing new features of PHP5 it is decided that effective February 5th, 2008, newly released versions of Krumo will only be developed and supported for PHP versions 5.2 and greater.
To sum it up: you might have heard of it, or not, but it is going to be a hot topic now since the news today about ceasing support for PHP4 since the end of this year. GoPHP5 is a strong initiative which is trying to push for vital change in the PHP community (even before the news about the “death” of PHP4). PHP is (still) major now. Neverthelss, PHP5 has been ignored by the majority of hosting companies and large projects for far too long now. Given that PHP6 is coming our way it is about time companies let go of the past and embrace a change for the better. With a lot of companies refusing to upgrade, developers are forced to provide support for PHP4 (including Krumo). On the other hand with developers still doing so much of PHP4, hosting companies are reluctant to upgrade. It’s a vicious circle… or it was - until the news today about PHP4 sleeping with the fishes.
The new release of the Krumo project is out: Krumo 0.2a! It features some minor bug fuxes, as well as samo small improvements to the rendering of the output data.
