Making PHP 5 a first class citizen rewrite

This task rewords the manual in such a manner that PHP 5 becomes a first class citizen. This means we'll remove terms like:

  • As of PHP 5
  • Since PHP 5
  • Added in PHP 5

Because those suggest that PHP 4 is the current PHP version, when in fact it's not.

The original proposal (and discussion that followed):

This idea does not mean that we'd remove PHP 4 specific content. However, it does mean adding changelogs to various parts of the documentation.



  • Determine how this would work exactly
  • Determine how PHP 4 specific extensions, like the old domxml, would be handled
