PHP 5.3
andrewf, it looks as though even if you want, there's a possibility that the new IonCube users would still have to get a re-encoded version of their product to use it with PHP 5.3?

http://forum.ioncube.com/viewtopic.php?t=1856

They've "worked hard" to keep backwards compatibility (as of the latest post on Oct. 3rd), but there seems to be no guarantees.

I'm glad you're also excited about PHP 5.3. Wink Lambda functions in PHP will be so nice in certain circumstances.

Wow, it's taken them long enough -- four months?! From what I'm reading into their announcement, though, it sounds as the new decoder will be able to read scripts encoded for older versions of Ioncube, so at least that should work.

At least that means we're just waiting for a final release of Ioncube, then. Once that's ready, there's nothing left keeping us from upgrading.

(Personally, what I'm most excited about is PHP 5.3's support for .user.ini files. They're like .htaccess files, except for PHP configuration. Having these available will mean that 99% of customers who are currently using custom PHP setups won't need to anymore.)

It seems as though they've been making progress on the Loader this whole time as the last update listed for their Linux release was April 21st, 2010 (source: http://www.ioncube.com/loaders.php).

Has Dreamhost tested the new ionCube Loaders/decoder yet to see its current level of stability?

Thanks, guys!

It's available, as discussed in other threads:
http://discussion.dreamhost.com/thread-1...#pid133017

It offers a lot of new possibilities, see here:
http://wiki.dreamhost.com/PHP.ini#PHP_5.3

I suggest to check on a local development web server (LAMP, XAMPP, and so on) if your applications are all compatible and then switch because not only PHP 5.3 offers many new useful features, but it'also faster. I've seen speed increases about 50%! Obviously it depends from what your application does, but the thing is really faster... which also means less cpu seconds usage on your account that's is so important.

Excellent, thank you!
