Round up

It's been a long time since I wrote something here, mostly because I got distracted by some real private life recently ;) and due to paid work of course. Therefore I thought I'd round up what has happened behind the scenes in my PHP world.

I rewrote the output control layer for PHP-6 some months ago and I'm about to upgrade ext/zlib to see how it really works out.

I didn't contribute that much to this upcoming release. Two things I'd like to mention are a fix for the Apache2 SAPI where each header("Content-Type: aaa/bbb") caused Apache to add output filters for the type to the outgoing filter chain and the addition of the error_get_last() function, which is a convenient accessor to the last occured error without fiddling around with INI(track_errors) and $php_errormsg.

There's official documentation now available online in the PHP manual, yay! :) It's not fully fleshed out, but gives some feeling about the provided functionality and hints on how to use this module.

php|a published an article by me about pecl/http in their Augusts issue!

There have also been three releases since 1.0, the most recent one (1.2) today. See the changes since then outlined below.


  • Improved response performance (HttpResponse, http_send API)

  • Added http_build_cookie() function

  • Added HttpQueryString::mod(array $params) method

  • Added ArrayAccess to interfaces implemented by HttpQueryString

  • Added HttpMessage::getHeader(string $name) method

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed http_parse_cookie() allowed_extras and flags parameters

  • Fixed configuration with shared dependencies

  • Fixed endless loop in http_build_url("..")

  • Fixed HttpResponse::capture() failure if buffered output exceeds 40k

  • Fixed HttpQueryString failures with objects as params

  • Fixed memory leaks with overloaded classes extending HTTP classes

  • Fixed build with gcc-2.95 (Thanks to Alexander Zhuravlev)

  • Fixed memory leak in inflate code (Thanks to Thomas Landro Johnsen)
