Hello everyone,

Another alpha build (alpha3) is now available on the download server
(http://www.ms4w.com/release/experimental/), which contains PHP 7.0.8 as
well as its extensions.  Thank you to those who had filed tickets for
specific PHP extensions (at http://ms4w.com/trac).  Note that most of
the extensions are loaded by default in PHP, so the best way to check
what extensions are included is through a phpinfo() call (there is a
'phpinfo.php' file already included in /ms4w/apache/htdocs/  Technical
users might want to check the configure command used when I compiled
this PHP, which is shown in the phpinfo() results (or here is a
screenshot, see the 5th row in the table:
http://pasteboard.co/1ZYfzJyX.png).  Don't be afraid to request
additional extensions through the MS4W tracker: http://ms4w.com/trac -
the time is now for feedback and requests.

PHP 7 is of course a big improvement (and I've invested almost 2 months
of my time to rebuild the entire MS4W stack for PHP 7, which requires
the latest compiler).  You can check online for performance improvements
of PHP 7, most estimate 3X speed improvements with this version (wow).
An important note of course is that PHPMapScript is not yet included in
the alpha, as it definitely requires additional development time and
effort; so please please contact me directly if your organization can
help fund this effort.

Thank you for using MS4W.

-------

Please check the 'HISTORY.txt' file in the alpha, for a list of changes
in your alpha build.

To use these alpha builds, be sure to install the 'Microsoft Visual C++
2015 Redistributable Update 2
' package first (vc_redist.x86.exe):
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=51682  An
important note: because of this new compiler, old systems running
Windows XP (and possible Windows Server 2003) can no longer be
supported.  But of course if need be, I can provide custom builds with
the old compiler for those organizations requiring that.

I realize that so many organizations (many on this mailing list) rely
heavily on MS4W, so please contact me directly to help support its
development with funding.  It is very important.

Below is a list of recent changes.  If you want the latest stable MS4W
release, please download last month's MS4W 3.1.4 release (from
http://ms4w.com/).
