PHP 5.1 is out and I have to agree with John that it feels rushed. There’s alot of new stuff in there and there seems to be alot of issues still, at least from what I hear. My major concern is that many HelpSpot trial users are PHP newbies installing it for the first time.* That’s always a challenge to begin with and if 5.1 introduces unknown issues on top of it that will of course only make things harder.
I guess I know what I’ll be doing on Sunday while I watch football. (test for HelpSpot capability of course!)
- On a side note, I think this willingness to jump into PHP just to try HelpSpot really shows how poor the help desk alternatives out there are and hopefully how compelling HelpSpot is.
