PHP 4 end of life announcement

[13-Jul-2007] Today it is exactly three years ago since PHP 5 has been released. In those three years it has seen many improvements over PHP 4. PHP 5 is fast, stable & production-ready and as PHP 6 is on the way, PHP 4 will be discontinued.

The PHP development team hereby announces that support for PHP 4 will continue until the end of this year only. After 2007-12-31 there will be no more releases of PHP 4.4. We will continue to make critical security fixes available on a case-by-case basis until 2008-08-08. Please use the rest of this year to make your application suitable to run on PHP 5.

An online, competitive, multiplayer strategy game based around the theme of thermonuclear armageddon, DEFCON is sure to keep your strategic mind captivated. Download DEFCON and play immediately with a free trial here: http://www.AmbrosiaSW.com/games/defcon/ "There exists an ever growing group of gamers who are converting to Apple and we want to make sure they enjoy playing all of our games," said Mark Morris, Introversion Software's Managing Director. "It's been great working with Ambrosia and I can't wait to see the reaction once everyone has started playing." "Global thermonuclear war has never been this much fun," said Andrew Welch, Ambrosia Software's el Presidente. "It's macabre, but plotting for your friend's total annihilation is perfectly satisfying." The game, inspired by the 1983 cult-classic film, WarGames, superbly evokes the tension, paranoia and suspicion surrounding the Cold War era. DEFCON was an instantaneous success, receiving an average of 85%+ in game reviews and scores of praise. PC Gamer UK described it as 'pure, deep, utterly unconscionable fun', while IGN awarded DEFCON an Editors Choice Award and praised it as 'highly impressive'. DEFCON is immediately available online from Ambrosia Software's website — http://www.AmbrosiaSW.com at a price of $25.00.
