UPGRADE NOTES - PHP X.Y
1. Internal API changes

b. Streams pooling API
c. Lowercasing and locales
d. zend_qsort_r
e. get_current_key
2. Build system changes
a. Unix build system changes
b. Windows build system changes
========================
1. Internal API changes
========================
a. Executor changes
* extensions can't override zend_execute() any more, they should override
zend_execute_ex() instead. The EG(current_execute_data) is already
initialized in zend_execute_ex(), so for compatibility extensions
may need to use EG(current_execute_data)->prev_execute_data instead.
* removed EG(arg_types_stack), EX(fbc), EX(called_scope), EX(current_object)
* added op_array->nested_calls. It's calculated at compile time.
* added EX(call_slots). It is an array to store information about syntaticaly
nested calls (e.g. foo(bar())). It's preallocated together with execute_data.
* added EX(call) - pointer to a current calling function. Actually an
element of EX(call_slots)
* opcodes INIT_METHOD_CALL, ZEND_INIT_STATIC_METHOD_CALL,
ZEND_INIT_FCALL_BY_NAME, ZEND_INIT_NS_FCALL_BY_NAME use result.num as
an index in EX(call_slots)
* opcode ZEND_NEW uses extended_vallue as an index in EX(call_slots)
* opcoes ZEND_DO_FCALL and ZEND_DO_FCALL_BY_NAME use op2.num as
an index in EX(call_slots)
* added op_array->used_stack. It's calculated at compile time and the
corresponding stack space is preallocated together with execute_data.
ZEND_SEND* and ZEND_DO_FCALL* don't need to check for stack overflow
anymore.
* Removed execute_data->Ts field. The VM temporary variables always allocated
immediately before execute_data structure. Now they are accessed by offset
from the execute_data base pointer (instead of execute_data->Ts). Compiler
stores new offsets in op_array->opcodes[*].op?.num. You can use macros
EX_TMP_VAR() and EX_TMP_VAR_NUM() to access temp_variable by offset or
number. You can convert number to offset using EX_TMP_VAR_NUM(0, num) or
offset to number (EX_TMP_VAR_NUM(0,0)-EX_TMP_VAR(0,offset)).
* Removed execute_data->CVs field. The VM compiled variables always allocated
immediately after execute_data structure. Now they are accessed by offset
from the execute_data base pointer (instead of execute_data->CVs). You can
use macros EX_CV_NUM() to access compiled variables by number.
b. Streams pooling API
The streams pooling API has been removed. The following functions no longer
exist:
PHPAPI int php_stream_context_get_link(php_stream_context *context,
const char *hostent, php_stream **stream);
PHPAPI int php_stream_context_set_link(php_stream_context *context,
const char *hostent, php_stream *stream);
PHPAPI int php_stream_context_del_link(php_stream_context *context,
php_stream *stream);
c. Lowercasing and locales
The lowercasing functions in zend_operators.c were split into those that do
lowercasing according to locale rules and those that do ASCII lowercasing.
ASCII:
zend_str_tolower_copy
zend_str_tolower_dup
zend_str_tolower
zend_binary_strcasecmp
zend_binary_strncasecmp
Locale-based:
zend_binary_strncasecmp_l
zend_binary_strcasecmp_l
zend_binary_zval_strcasecmp
zend_binary_zval_strncasecmp
string_compare_function_ex
string_case_compare_function
Internal engine lowercasing will be using ASCII-only rules. User-facing functions,
such as strcasecmp, will be using locale rules.
Two new functions - zend_binary_strncasecmp_l and zend_binary_strcasecmp_l - added as
locale-based counterparts to zend_binary_strcasecmp and zend_binary_strncasecmp.
d. zend_qsort_r
Added the function zend_qsort_r():
typedef int (*compare_r_func_t)(const void *, const void * TSRMLS_DC, void *);
void zend_qsort_r(void *base, size_t nmemb, size_t siz, compare_r_func_t compare, void *arg TSRMLS_DC);
The extra argument it has (relatively to zend_qsort()) is passed to the
comparison function.
e. get_current_key
The signature of the get_current_key iteration handler has been changed to:
void (*get_current_key)(zend_object_iterator *iter, zval *key TSRMLS_DC);
The key should be written into the zval* using the ZVAL_* macros.
========================
2. Build system changes
========================
a. Unix build system changes
-
b. Windows build system changes
- Drop Windows XP and 2003 support.
