Dear Sir,

         I found the following ports in FreeBSD ports tree are
maintained by you:

1. /usr/ports/lang/php5
2. /usr/ports/lang/php5-extensions

         PHP has officially released PHP 5.4.0 on 01-Mar-2012,
it fix the folowing security bug:


Also, There are some key features of PHP 5.4.0 include:

1. New language syntax including Traits, shortened array syntax and more
2. Improved performance and reduced memory consumption
3. Support for multibyte languages now available in all builds of PHP
at the flip of a runtime switch
4. Built-in webserver in CLI mode to simplify development workflows and testing
5. Cleaner code base thanks to the removal of multiple deprecated
language features
6. Many more improvements and fixes

    Cloud you please upgrade the PHP version from 5.3.10_1 to 5.4.0 in
FreeBSD port tree?

Best Regards!

                                                       James Chang
