Are You Ready for MySQL extension Removal from PHP – Lately in PHP podcast episode 59

By Manuel Lemos
When PHP 7 will be released it will have the mysql extension removed from the core distribution. PHP 5.4 will stop being updated. Many PHP developers will have to move to PHP version 5.5 or higher, on which the mysql extension is deprecated. Many shared hosting providers already use PHP 5.5 without the mysql extension.

Alternative solutions to deal with legacy code that relies on the old mysql extension was one the topics commented by Manuel Lemos and Arturs Sosins in the episode 59 of the Lately in PHP podcast.

They also commented on proposals for future PHP versions like fixing the division by zero issue, adding static constructors to classes, the PHP RFC Watch site to keep up with new PHP proposals and voting.

They also explained the new initiative to promote reviews of books of authors that have written books of interest for PHP developers, as well writing great PHP tutorial articles for the PHP Classes blog and being compensated for that. The latest tutorial articles were also reviewed here.
