Notable Changes

Obtaining PHPUnit 4.3

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.

Requirements

PHPUnit 4.3 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.

  • PHPUnit 4.4 is the current beta release series of PHPUnit. It will become stable on December 5, 2014.
  • PHPUnit 4.5 is the current alpha release series of PHPUnit. It will go into beta on December 5, 2014.
