We weren't trying to pull an April Fool's Day joke in May. A temporary glitch caused the latest distributions of PHP to not properly propagate to the mirror servers. This has been fixed at the root level, and it's now being distributed to all of the mirrors. We'll take some bacon to go with the egg on our faces, please!

If you continue to experience issues with downloading these versions after 21:00 UTC on 9 May, 2013, please drop us a line at php-mirrors@lists.php.net, telling us from which mirror you're trying to download, and we'll get it resolved.

We apologize for the delays and confusion this may have caused, and thank you for using PHP.

Ibuildings is proud to organise the seventh Dutch PHP Conference on June 7 and 8, plus a pre-conference tutorial day on June 6. Both programs will be completely in English so the only Dutch thing about it is the location.

This year we have 30+ speakers gathering in Amsterdam. The 3-track main conference covers topics like PHP 5.5, software design, APIs, Zend Framework 2, Symfony 2, security, scalability and more. Our Tutorial Day has an additional 16 in-depth sessions to choose from.

Your DPC ticket also lets you into the Dutch Mobile Conference: an additional two tracks about cutting edge javascript and non-native application development. This year features several side events: a bigger and better unconference, a Zend sponsored hackathon, a social in downtown Amsterdam, and a Symfony2 certification exam.

The Early Bird special ends April 28th, so book right away for a 15% discount. We look forward to seeing you in June!
