The PHPUnit development team announces the immediate availability of PHPUnit 4.1.0. This release adds new features and fixes bugs. A detailed list of changes is available here.

New Release Process

PHPUnit 4.1.0 is the second version of PHPUnit that follows our new release process. Our goal with the new release process is to deliver new features into the hands of our users every two months.

There is no beta release series of PHPUnit at the moment since we are still in the process of adopting the new release process. This will change on June 6, 2014 when PHPUnit 4.2 moves from alpha to beta and the development of PHPUnit 4.3 begins. PHPUnit 4.2 is scheduled to become stable on August 8, 2014.

New Features

The development focus for PHPUnit 4.1 was refactoring. The only new feature is the addition of the withConsecutive() matcher.

Obtaining PHPUnit 4.1

We distribute a PHP Archive (PHAR) that contains everything you need in order to use PHPUnit. Simply download it from here, make it executable, and put it into your $PATH, for instance.

Alternatively, you may use Composer to download and install PHPUnit as well as its dependencies. Please note that we no longer support the PEAR installation method.


PHPUnit 4.1 requires PHP 5.3.3; using the latest version of PHP is highly recommended. The documentation has a detailed list of the PHP extensions that are required to use PHPUnit.
