General Development For a technology that has been in stable release since May 22, 2000, PHP 4 has finally reached the end of its official life. With the release of PHP 4.4.9, official support has ended and the final security patch for the platform issued. With PHP 5 offering a viable upgrade path for the last few years, the recommendation is for addministrators and developers is to move to the PHP 5 platform (if they haven't already done so), which is currently at 5.2.6. For those who are not able to migrate their systems to the new version of PHP noted PHP security expert, Stefan Esser, will continue to provide third party security patching for the PHP 4 line through his Suhosin product.

The title is right?

I think it should be

'PHP 4 is Dead, Long Live PHP 5'

or are you trying to say that PHP 5 is the same thing as PHP 4?

Why not "PHP is dead, Long Live PHP" instead?

When Software dies, there's often a scramble to keep it alive (through unofficial means).

What the title means is that now PHP4 is dead, may it live for long through the community.
