PHP 4.4 branching

Due to a patch for a bug with references in PHP 4.3 that breaks binary compability for extension modules the PHP projectjust created a PHP 4.4 branch. This is only because of a backwards compability break. No new features will be added on the PHP 4.4 branch, only bug fixes are allowed.

All hail the new PHP Release Master :-)

Did I miss the talk about the release meister changing?

Jacques, you didn't miss it. But it's quite custom to have a new one for a new branch.

Do you recommend using this release once it's stable with EZ publish?

Yes, definitely. I would recommend to use it for all PHP 4 applications actually.
