As you can see below, this has been a busy summer for the PHP development team - releasing new versions every month, with each version addressing more than 20 issues. Some vulnerabilities and security issues were also fixed in various releases.
The PHP development team has released 2 updates to PHP - 5.3.7 and 5.3.8, just 5 days later. There were over 90 fixes and improvements in these releases, increasing the overall stability and performance of PHP. The reason version 5.3.8 was released only 5 days after 5.3.7 was to correct 2 serious bugs introduced by the 5.3.7 version. All webmasters should note that PHP 5.2 is no longer supported by the developers and you should be moving your applications to the newer version.
