Does anyone think or know whether PHP 5.2.18 is coming out? I want to finalize my installation with the last 5.2.x and don't want to go through it again. I won't be switching to 5.3 for a long time. Too many sites and deprecated features to go through.


You can just turn off deprecated warnings. From what I know, no features have actually been removed between 5.2 and 5.3

PHP 5.2 is considered as not maintained anymore.

So, in theory, there should be no new version of PHP 5.2 -- and no new version is planned.

See the announcement of PHP 5.2.16 :

This release marks the end of support for PHP 5.2.
All users of PHP 5.2 are encouraged to upgrade to PHP 5.3.

Still, if a very severe / critical bug is detected, it is possible that some PHP code-developper might decide to release a new version, to fix that bug.
That's what caused the release of PHP 5.2.17, for instance.

But this is not something that's supposed to happen ever again : critical bugs are not something you expect ;-)
