What's new in PHP 5.3?

I wrote an article on Installing PHP 5.3 in order to look at the newest features that have been back-ported from PHP 6. The result of this is my What’s new in PHP 5.3 article that was published by SitePoint yesterday.

I won’t go in to the nitty-gritty here, but suffice it to say the the new features will solve a number of problems. Read the full article to find out more about namespaces, late static binding, a new MySQL native driver and the other features of PHP 5.3.

I don't send many updates. I don't like to spam. Let's face it - I've not posted many new articles for a while (although I do plan on changing that). If you subscribe to new articles, I'll send no more than two emails a week. As for workshop and conference information, that'll be as and when I have details. It's not likely to be more than an email a week.
