RE: [pdt-dev] PHP 5.3.0 support

I'm going to meet this week with some of the people working on PHP 5.3.0
and get a better insight of their schedule.
After this meeting we'll have better understanding of what we're up
against and plan our roadmap accordingly.

Guy Gurfinkel,
Group Leader, Development Tools

Couldn't find an existing bug for this enhancement, so I've opened

Once the PDT devs see it, they can comment there on

Of course if you're itching to see this implemented, I'm sure they'd be 
happy to have a patch/contribution from you. :)

As an aside, the Eclipse newsgroups generally work better if you're 
looking for support. Mailing lists usually are for dev-to-community 
announcements and dev-to-dev discussions. Bugzilla is best for feature 
requests and offers to help / contribute.
