and the Win32 binaries will be available in short order.
Since the last release, there are over 20 different bug fixes resolving some annoying engine issues such as the tempval leak inside foreach(). We do not anticipate any regressions to be introduced by this RC, but I would still like to ask everyone to take a few minutes and test it against their code base. If you come across any issues please report them at http://bugs.php.net/.
Depending on the stability of this release it may either be followed by a final release or another RC, therefor your feedback is critical to determining whether or not the code is stable enough to warrant the 5.2.1 final.
Sorry for being off-topic. But I haven't heard any news regarding the progess of PHP6. Your introducing a lot of functions and features in the PHP 5.x series, so it looks like there is no major interest in PHP6. And regarding to the PHP development wiki it looks like we are still far away from an beta release.
Thanks for your information and work!
Personally (and this by no means reflects the opinions of other developers), I don't really consider PHP6 viable, and while I have done work on making things work in it such as shmop and curl extensions I have little interest in pursuing those development efforts further. Overall I think PHP6 is very far from stable and equally far from being usable. As such, efforts to develop and improve the language should be done in the 5.X branch as well.
