The PHP development team released PHP 5.3.8. This release fixes two issues introduced in the PHP 5.3.7 release:
- Fixed bug #55439 (crypt() returns only the salt for MD5)
- Reverted a change in timeout handling restoring PHP 5.3.6 behavior, which caused mysqlnd SSL connections to hang (Bug #55283).
All PHP users should note that the PHP 5.2 series is NOT supported anymore. All users are strongly encouraged to upgrade to PHP 5.3.8.
