Just a quick note, that a major release of PHP (4.2.0) was released today.

From reading the changelog I can tell you that it includes a number of fixes that are benefitial to all those who run FUDforum.
The fixes that I believe are of importance are:

1) Improvment of file upload code, you'll be able to upload larger files.
2) Multibyte support for preg_* style functions
3) Miscellenous fixes in preg_* style functions
4) Posix extension has been cleaned up (used by file manager)
5) Wordwrap has been significantly optimized
(no word on multibyte support for this function)
6) Fixed a bug in pspell module, that used wrong pspell.h during compile. (affects people who use spell checker)
7) bug fixes inside the nl2br() function


My reocmmendation is that you wait 1-2 weeks and if now serious issues come up upgrade your PHP.

Heh, I spoke too soon, already 1 "major" bug has been found.

Apparently if you upload .jpg files using Mozilla 0.9.9 it may cause PHP to segfault. A person who found the bug already commited a patch and it went into CVS.

I for one will be waiting for 4.2.1 or 4.2.0RC1 *chuckle*.

Strange, and they did lay attention to stressing how intense they would check the new release Wink. But It often happens with releases ending with "0". The bugfix ist just around the corner in most cases Wink.

PHP 4.2.0 appears to have a NASTY bug on FreeBSD 4.5.
The bug which has been replicated causes PHP to core whenever mkdir() function is being used.

This has come to my attention after one of FUDforum users had reported a a php crash during the 1.2.8 install process.

Full details of the bug can be found here:
