Hi, looking at the phpinfo() of the new installed version of php5.4 I see the following features that were included in 5.3 are now missing:
- mailparse
- memcache
- SQLite
- uploadprogress
- ionCube loader

While have been added:
- mysqlnd (native driver)
- tokenizer

May we know something about reasons for these changes? Of course native driver for mysql is welcome, but I think I will miss mailparse and memcache. In case we need them, should we install an our own version of PHP 5.4 or is it possible that you will consider to restore them?
Thanks and regards
Roberto

We are currently working on adding those again. PHP 5.4 was released recently and each extension needs to be built and tested on three different platforms, before we deploy them.

Update: ionCube Loader hasn't been released for PHP5.4 yet so we won't be able to update it.

Update again: These extension have been out for a few weeks.

  • mailparse
  • memcache
  • uploadprogress

Great. Thank you very much. I can migrate to 5.4 without worries then, because I plan to use memcached in the future (hoping that my website will need it :-)

The memcache module should be deployed in the next few days. The others won't be far behind either.

Just curious on if there's an updated timeline. Thanks :)

Any updates on uploadprogress being added? Getting this error on a PHP 5.4 app:

PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library '/home/euantorano/php54-exts/uploadprogress.so' - /home/euantorano/php54-exts/uploadprogress.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

uploadprogress is already available on your server.

The problem is that you have an invalid symlink in your local extension directory. Try running the following commands to fix it:

find ~/php54-exts/ -type l | xargs rm
ln -s /usr/local/lib/php54/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20100525/* ~/php54-exts/

Hope that helps!
