PHP 5.3 Release Candidate 2 is available

PHP 5.3 is approaching the pointy end of development and it's worth me blogging so awareness and testing increases before general release.

The second release candidate for PHP 5.3 has been announced. Source code is http://downloads.php.net/johannes/. Windows binaries are at http://windows.php.net/qa/.

There is a wiki page with upgrading notes. Updates are welcome either directly or via discussion on the "internals" mail list.

In a parallel note, there is a surge of energy around this year's PHP TestFest. The wiki page contains lots of useful information - including mentor lists and reusable presentations - about running and contributing to your own local testfests.

The PHP gcov code coverage numbers show there are lots of areas that can be improved to.

If you're coming to PHP|Tek (in Chicago from May 19th), there will be a testfest one evening. See you there.
