[wp-hackers] At last... (PHP versions)

Rejoice: PHP 5.3 is, at last, on the threshold of overtaking PHP 5.2 as 
the most common version that WordPress is being run on...


... just in time for the PHP 5.3 end-of-life! 
http://marc.info/?l=php-internals&m=140605526629324&w=2 (though for 
many, there will continue to be security patches for several more years, 
since PHP 5.3 was part of RHEL 5 and hence Cent OS 5).

 From the end of this month, around 21.5% of WordPress installations 
will be running on non-EOL-ed PHP versions.
