It is time to upgrade to PHP 5

While just casually checking out www.php.net website, I found the news flash about 'End of Life Announcement' for PHP 4.x series.  With 13 July 2007 as the announcement got officially released, PHP 5 has been in for three years with a significant number of releases and security/other updates. Now it is considered more fast, stable and production-ready. What's more? The PHP.NET website also claims that PHP 6 is on the way.

After 31st December 2007 there would be no more releases of PHP 4.4. Their team would work on crucial security fixes till 8th August 2008. Hence it is high time, that we also start looking into PHP 5 for our learning and updating our PHP applications and websites.
