Hello, Alex!

FreeBSD 8.3 is done, please commit update lang/php5 to PHP 5.4 to
portstree. Thank you in advance.
I'm really waiting for this moment because I was going to install a
large number of new servers with the new version of PHP (version 5.4
should be so you do not have a problem with a major update of the
working of the system) and allready waited for several weeks.
Who needs the old 5.3 - can roll back the version of the ports to
today's date and solve the question with lang/php53
