Now, the PHP development team has announced that they will be dropping all but critical-security support for PHP 4 at the end of the year and completely dropping all support on 08/08/08. Given the groundswell of support GoPHP5 has received, it looks like this will be the final one-two punch to knock out PHP 4 and complete the transition to PHP 5. After three years, it looks like PHP 5's day has finally come."
