The fourth release candidate of 5.3.1 was just released for testing and can be downloaded here:
MD5 (php-5.3.1RC3.tar.bz2) = 9747f89ed9962e1f9c4d1c5ed3f8757f
MD5 (php-5.3.1RC3.tar.gz) = 1b9035f75f652dcb9a6dcbcb8b7b0dda
This is is the first bug-fix release, after the .0 fixing quite many issues, since RC3 a safe_mode issue and a few other bugs have been fixed so this additional RC is needed. Depending on feedback I hope to be able to roll the final using the same code base Thursday next week. To make this possible, please test this RC against your code base and report any problems that you encounter.
The first release candidate of 5.2.12 was just released for testing and can be downloaded here:

This is a bug-fix only release so the hope is that there are no regressions, just bug fixes. None the less I would like to ask everyone to test this release against their code base to make sure that there are no new issues and/or regressions. The goal is to have the release finalized by early December and with the next RC scheduled 2 weeks from now.
If you do come across any issues, please make them known via a bug report or a reply to this e-mail.
