PHP5.3 alpha is out, PHP4 is now officially dead

PHP 4.4.9 was rolled out today, and marks the end of development for PHP4. So everyone jump to PHP5, now. PHP5.3 alpha was released today and includes namespaces; a feature planned for PHP6, but apparently pulled forward.

Namespaces means the end of tortuously long class names in OO programming. There are a bunch of other new features, and some under-the-hood optimisations. The final version is due out September time.
