Release 1.3.2
2007-03-01
PL/php now links against PHP Embed SAPI instead of Apache mod_php. This makes
it much more future-proof against internal PHP changes. The old way of
linking against Apache is gone.
Added "configure" support, to detect the necessary utilities and libraries.

cleanups.

Release 1.1
2005-12-05
What's in the 1.1 release:
- The build system no longer requires the PHP nor PostgreSQL sources.
It uses PGXS, making it all much easier to build compared to the
original 1.0 release.
- Rudimentary SPI support, meaning you can send queries to the server
and get/process the results.
- Trigger support: you can write trigger functions, including the
ability to abort or skip an operation, or modifying the tuple before
insert/update.
- Function validation: PL/php will tell you right away if the function
you are creating has a syntax error, and abort the creation, so no
invalid functions make it into the database.
- You will receive any errors and warnings that PHP generates while
executing your function.
PL/php 1.1 only works with PostgreSQL 8.0 and 8.1. It has been tested
with PHP 4.4.1 only, but it should work with PHP 5 as well.
Differences from the original 1.0 release include:
- Error messages and warnings are passed from PHP to Postgres instead of
being silently dropped.
- No more memory leaks in SPI functions.
- SPI results are now an opaque PHP resource, so it's no longer possible
to crash the server by modifying it.
- Memory handling has been overhauled. There are no known memory leaks.
Huge SPI results can be processed.
- SRF support has been removed. It will be added again in the next
release. The previous version was found to be too buggy and poorly
thought-out.
- A private symbol table is created for each function, which facilitates
the process of releasing memory used by the function. This symbol
table is cleared after each call.
