The first release candidate of PHP 5.4 was just released. The announcement on the main page is still missing, but the links are the usual ones: http://www.php.net/archive/2011.php#id2011-11-10-1
Today, I gave a presentation on Traits for PHP in Paris. It was a quite interesting audience, ca. 35 professional PHP developers and all interested in Traits.
PHP 5.3 is already released for a while and starts to settle in.
Finally, I managed to complete the changes for the traits patch. Since, PHP 5.3 already entered the release cycle and it is not sure whether there will be a PHP 5.4 with new language features, the new patch is written for the PHP6 codebase.
Heute, am zweiten Tag der Unconference hier in Hamburg, hab ich endlich ein wenig Zeit mir auch ein paar Vorträge an zu hören. Gestern musste ich unerwarteter Weise gleich zwei mal ran.
During the last six months I’ve studied a language construct called Traits. It is a construct enabling fine-grained code reuse beside single inheritance in classical object oriented languages. A first implementation of this concept has been around for Squeak. Since I’ve used PHP already for a quite long time now, I decided to dig into its internals and implement Traits for PHP, too.
