    Great for local development, or if you are a webhost on a dedicated server, but
    otherwise, this just makes some people drool, as most shared hosting servers run
    older versions of everything :(

    This is also the last PHP4 release. This was due on Dec 31, 2007 but just came out now. PHP4.x will no longer be supported and will give way to PHP5's further development and PHP6 has already started.

    Here is news from the PHP website announced middle of last year.

    PHP End of Life Announcement

    [13-Jul-2007] Today it is exactly three years ago since PHP 5 has been released. In those three years it has seen many improvements over PHP 4. PHP 5 is fast, stable & production-ready and as PHP 6 is on the way, PHP 4 will be discontinued.
    The PHP development team hereby announces that support for PHP 4 will continue until the end of this year only. After 2007-12-31 there will be no more releases of PHP 4.4. We will continue to make critical security fixes available on a case-by-case basis until 2008-08-08. Please use the rest of this year to make your application suitable to run on PHP 5.
    For documentation on migration for PHP 4 to PHP 5, we would like to point you to our migration guide. There is additional information available in the PHP 5.0 to PHP 5.1 and PHP 5.1 to PHP 5.2 migration guides as well.
