PHP PECL OCI8 1.3.4 is available
By cj on Jul 29, 2008
OCI 1.3.4, with the changes I mentioned in my last post, is now available on PECL: http://pecl.php.net/package/oci8.
In other news, the PHP community has been working hard on updating the Windows build infrastructure. Chatting on IRC this morning, Pierre said he hoped to get time to put Oracle Instant Client 11g and an updated OCI8 build script onto the PHP Windows build machine tonight. (Like much work on PHP, this will be done in his personal "spare" time.)
The plan is to build two mutually exclusive OCI8 DLLs: one using 10g and one using 11g libraries. This will let you choose which OCI8 DLL to use. If you need to connect back to Oracle 8.1, you can continue to use Instant Client 10gR2. If you connect to Oracle 9.2 or greater - or perhaps you want to use Oracle 11g connection pooling (DRCP) - you can use the PHP OCI8 DLL built with Instant Client 11gR1.
