  2. Releases

  3. New PHP Versions • PHP 5.4.8 • PHP 5.3.18 •

    Fix: Exceptions thrown in _autoload can now be caught • Curl Wrapper: Less CPU • FPM stability improvements • Error Handler now catches more fatals like: $some_null_or_str->foo() Changelog available at: http://www.php.net/ChangeLog-5.php
  4. New PHP RFC - Pádraic Brady: Escaper • Dedicated to

    the secure escaping of untrusted values against Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) and related vulnerabilities • htmlspecialchars(), htmlentities() aren't really enough • Similar to the HTMLPurifier, ZF2's Escaper and Symfony/Twig's escaper extension, but hopefully in SPL! https://wiki.php.net/rfc/escaper
