Hi All,
the long awaited update to PHP 5.3 is ready! Here is the patchset to try
 before I'll commit it in the next week: http://www.alexdupre.com/php53.diff

Removed ports:


Update instructions (choose one of them):

1) remove all php ports and all ports that depends on php,
   then reinstall your the php applications

2) deinstall the removed ports,
   then upgrade recursively the lang/php5 port

To apply the patch (to a fresh ports tree):

cd /usr/ports && patch -p0 -E ~/php53.diff

Note: Zend decided to not support FreeBSD anymore, so a new
ZendOptimizer release for php 5.3 will never be released.
