Mambo is Moving With the Times
Mambo is Moving With the TimesFollowing a year of research and analysis, Team Mambo has made the decision to move to PHP 5 for future releases of Mambo.

The new minimum requirements for Mambo 4.7 will be:
PHP 5.2 or above;
MySQL 4.1 or above.

What does this mean for you?

Mambo will not be refactored to change all code in 4.7 to PHP 5. However, all new functionality is being written in PHP 5. The change gives us the opportunity to update many of our third-party libraries to use the latest versions and also gives us the opportunity to replace some inefficient libraries with newer code. This change also gives us the ability to reuse code which will mean that new features that are coming in Mambo 4.7 can be ported to Mambo 5.

We are excited about the change and are looking forward to the improved functionality, performance, speed, and security PHP 5 allows us to bring to Mambo and from the feedback we have received from 3PD's it appears that this change will be welcomed by most third-party developers.
