But thanks to the community someone has picked up the project and added a few fixes and extended compatability. As the developer didnt react on my mail asking to publish here, I take the opportunity to direct some more... Read full post

Red Hat introduced with with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.6 a new PHP version for users, which whish to migrate to a more current PHP release. This new version was packaged as "php53" and replaces the regular "php" (PHP 5.1.x) if the user chooses to migrate.
Unfortunately, PHP 5.1 and PHP 5.3 are ABI incompatible, that means that PHP modules that were compiled for PHP 5.1 can not be run using PHP 5.3. Every PHP module that shall work with PHP 5.3 needs to be recompiled from source.

Changed naming conventions for Z-Push

May 27, 2011 by Sebastian   Comments (0)

, , , , ,

Hi Z-Push'ers,
we are using a differnet naming convention starting with the 1.5.3 release. From now on it will have the following structure:z-push-[version]-{buildnr}.tar.gz and z-push-[version]-{buildnr} for the start folder inside the archive. For example: z-push-1.5.3RC-627.tar.gz with the start folder z-push-1.5.3RC-627 in it.
The final version won't have any tag.
For example: z-push-1.5.3-685.tar.gz with the start folder z-push-1.5.3-685 in it.
We believe that this will make the... Read full post
