    Are you indicating stable release of cPanel or stable release in general sense?

    In general sense, although I'm on stable for cpanel as well.
    I just want to install the most stable version, but if I can go up that will be nice. I notice there's no beta on the 5.0 series now.

    Entirely up to you. php v4 is going ot be compatible with more scripts available for now and as it's older is likely to be more stable. However, as support dies for it, then the move to php5 is inevitable and you'll find more and more scripts being written with php5 compatibility only.

    The development of the PHP language is bizarre to the extreme when one of its main precepts is not to maintain backwards compatibility between versions. It definitely does not do itself any favours in that regard (never mind the security model).

    I'm on Version 4.3.11
    From what you say I assume Version 4.4.0 is stable now?

    If I remember correctly, 4.4.0 is just a bugfix release - they only bumped the middle version number because they changed something in the internal API, they didn't add any new features.

    And re-jiggled the error handling a fraction (made it a little more picky, I believe), which might result in some scripts throwing up warnings when previously they didn't.

    This is by no means a problem, but certainly justifies advising your clients about first.

    p.s.

    Somehow the phrase "throwing up warnings" just doesn't quite sound right!

    I was going to suggest "bringing up an exception" but it's not getting any better ;)

    I haven't had any issue with 4.4.0 just take care if you use Zend Optimizer as you'll need the a revision of v2.10a

    So if it's a bugfix, as long as I'm not experiencing a bug, my version should be ok.

    Also be aware that eAccelerator isn't compatible with Zend 2.5.10a, which is a bit sad :(

    Does Zend come with php? I always thought it was an addon product to php.

    It's something different.
