The current version of PHP is 5.2.10. XAMPP 1.7.1 uses 5.2.9.
I have no problems with XAMPP at all (which is why I use it), but I need to work with Symfony on a new project. The Symfony configuration checker is pretty insistent that a number of things are broken in 5.2.9 (and they are needed), so an upgrade to 5.2.10 is required.
I have downloaded 5.2.10 to a new subdirectory of the XAMPP folder, but the contents of the PHP directory look somewhat different in the version distributed by Apache Friends, compared to the 5.2.10 version that is on PHP.net. I'm not sure how much I need to worry about this.
So, my questions are:
1) Is there ever going to be a version of XAMPP that includes PHP 5.2.10? Or are they just going to jump to 5.3?
2) If not, has anyone tried doing this upgrade, successfully? Were any problems encountered?
Thanks in advance,
