    The changelog

    I went through the changelog here:

    http://www.php.net/ChangeLog-4.php

    I couldn't find any reason to upgrade on that list for me. Just a short list of bugfixes.

    I'm still waiting for the new ZE2 stuff

    Personally I found that the compilation was a lot faster, so there were probably some other changes under the hood.
    The previous release had to be patched to use Sablotron, whereas this one detected it straightaway.

    Unfortunately this release comes with a few of its own problems in relation to form data so I had to downgrade to 4.2.2

    There isn't any mention of anything on the PHP site so hopefully somebody will be able to shed some light...

    What do you mean?

    I actually upgraded out of boredom and haven't seen any problems?

    But...maybe I just haven't noticed...

    To follow up on my earlier post about the problems, the latest release causes a lot of problems with form data submissions, converting strings of text (eg. names ) and numbers (eg. telephone numbers) into illegible junk.
    It could be due to some bad programming in the original scripts in use, but as they worked fine on all previous releases downgrading seemed the only reasonable, though unconventional, solution to adopt.
