---- Windows XP and 2003 support dropped in PHP 5.5
coopster - 9:48 pm on Jul 2, 2013 (gmt 0)Added generators [php.net] and coroutines.
I think the biggest news is in the title and it impacts Windows users. You can see the rest of the changelog [php.net] and the migration guide [php.net] on the PHP site.
The key features of PHP 5.5.0 include:
Added the finally [php.net] keyword.
Added a simplified password hashing API [php.net].
Added support for constant array/string dereferencing [php.net].
Added scalar class name resolution via ::class [php.net].
Added support for using empty() on the result of function calls and other expressions [php.net].
Added support for non-scalar Iterator keys in foreach [php.net].
Added support for list() constructs in foreach statements [php.net].
Added the Zend OPcache [php.net] extension for opcode caching.
The GD library has been upgraded to version 2.1 adding new functions and improving existing functionality.
A lot more improvements and fixes.
