PHP 4.1.0 released

12/21/2001

PHP 4.1.0 is out, and it features a major improvement in input methods which should have a very favorable impact on security. The register_globals is still on by default, but the new mechanism provides access to the user-supplied (and thus untrustable) data for admins who prefer to disable the register_globals behavior. Very cool stuff, and thanks to Shaun Clowes at securereality.com.au for shining his light on some of these issues.
