Todos

RM stuff

  • Make sure that we don't have unintentional BC breaks, and every change is mentioned in the appropriate place (NEWS/UPGRADING/etc.).
  • Work together with the documentation team, so the docs are already up to date when the final 5.6.0 is released.
  • Make sure that the credits are up-to-date(ext/standard/credits.c, ext/standard/credits_ext.h, ext/standard/credits_sapi.h).

Engine

  • Engine changes should be reported to Zend team for OPCache patching if needed (ping dmitry/laruence).

Core

  • Merge UTF-8 IO support for Windows patch (this is still not done, I think this should wait for the next version)
  • Sort out the unserialize issue(provide an upgrade path for phpunit and co.).

Extensions

Sqlite
  • Update to latest sqlite3 (3.8.0.2+)
