    More stable PHP available

    Version 5.2.7 of PHP, the dynamic web-page programming language, is now freely available to download. The project team has focused this release mainly on stability. The new version contains more than 170 bugfixes, half a dozen of them to eliminate security vulnerabilities. All users of PHP should upgrade to the new version, which is described as the most stable version in the 5.2.x development branch.

    Uh-huh... and that has *what* to do with the PHP5.2.7 release? SQL injections are generally the worry of the PHP programmer handling input data baddly.

    How exactly do you propose we get rid of them? :s

    Also, I can't wait for PHP5.3-stable to be released. Namespaced, late static binding, et alia. Mmmmmm

    For reference PHP 5.2.7 should not be used.. It was pulled and 5.2.8 was released to address a security issue
