The PHP Development Team would like to announce the immediate release of PHP 5.5.0. This release includes a large number of new features and bug fixes.

A separate release announcement is also available. For changes in PHP 5.5.0 since PHP 5.4, please consult the PHP 5 ChangeLog.

Release Announcement: http://www.php.net/release_5_5_0.php
Downloads: http://www.php.net/downloads.php#v5.5
Changelog: http://www.php.net/ChangeLog-5.php#5.5.0

Thanks to all contributors that made this new version available.


David Soria Parra & Julien Pauli

Official x86 & x64 builds: http://windows.php.net/download/

If you are missing extensions, you may find them in my 5.5 builds:

Or you may want to try the x64 builds:

In line with the official builds I have used VC11 as well.

Beware: in PHP 5.5's php.ini you do not have to add a path in the zend_extension statements:

zend_extension=php_xdebug.dll # load this one after opcache

One thing the official releases have and mine don't: PGO optimization. I doubt if it makes much difference, but Microsoft thinks so:
But you can always try to mix the official PHP.exe with as much of their extensions as possible and only add my extensions if the official build does not have them.

Another official resource for extensions can be found at http://windows.php.net/downloads/pecl/releases/

The rest of the MS-blogpost is a little misleading: they compare PHP 5.4 with APC to PHP 5.5 with Opcache. I would like to see numbers comparing PHP 5.4 with Opcache versus PHP 5.5 with Opcache.

My first build did not contain php_threads.dll, because it failed compiling. However, that has been fixed quickly by Joe Watkins. So a new upload of the TS versions is there:


For information on php_pthreads.dll:

The issue with respect to the compilation:
