Not for another 8 months at least, then the inevitable PHP5 thread will
commence. Until then, I will bide my time, dreaming of what will never
come in 8 months or 10 months or probably not even 12 months.
Some of my immense hatred for WordPress has been relieved, as XML DOM
can now be used (except for the sour fact that DOM for PHP 5 would also
have to be supported if XML DOM is used. Sigh, XML is so much easier in
PHP 5, but that is neither here nor now). XML DOM is fairly decent in
its XML support and I have been itching to write patches that used it to
replace the way it is currently done. Writing compatibility layer XML
code is fascinating and something I look forward to hopefully getting in
to replace the current method of XML.
This also opens up a whole list of PHP functions that would otherwise
have to be avoided. So I do look forward to the outlook of code that
uses PHP 4.3 to the fullest!
Dude, I'm so totally going to love not going to school in the Fall. I
just hope you guys accept my crazy, insane ideas during the Summer and
Fall. I can't wait to dive back into XML DOM and debate the issue on
whether it should be used to replace what is done now.
