OPML Reading List & PHP Upgrade Notice

The other day, I came across Scott Johnson’s PHP OPML Reading List. Offering an OPML reading list for others to download is a great idea, and, since I’ve not yet blogged about it, I wanted to point out that I’ve been doing this for a long while now. On my home page, under the “syndicate” heading, is a link to my OPML blogroll. Feel free to import my OPML into your feed reader; that’s what it’s there for. (Please also note that I use SimpleXML to generate the blogroll on my home page from this list.)

There’s a lot of overlap between Scott’s and my list; however, I think both lists provide a good overview of some of the great PHP bloggers out there – and I know there are many more than are on these lists, as pointed out by Chris.

In other news, the PHP development team released PHP 5.1.3 earlier this week, and, shortly thereafter, a user reported a critical bug with data in the $_POST array when submitting from a multi-part form. As of right now, there is no official release update posted on the PHP downloads page, but Chris provides a link to download the 5.1.4 source from a mirror.

I’ve already compiled and updated from the new source, and I encourage you to do the same.

UPDATE (5/5/06 4:30 UTC): The PHP team has made an official announcement concerning the 5.1.4 release on their Web site and have updated the downloads page.
