    Php Qa?


    I must be looking right over this. I can't find anything that defines QA Releases VS other releases, or even what QA is. The closest I find is "Quality Assurance". I guess my goal for this is a 64-bit version PHP for Windows, which DOES exist as a QA 5.5 release, but not under the downloads as a 5.5 release. It says there are none. Can anyone help define what the QA is? Thanks in advance.

    A QA release is a release for a version of PHP that hasn't been officially finished yet; it's still being tested for stability.

    There have been no stable releases of PHP 5.5 yet, which is why it does not appear under downloads.

    As per E-Oreo's response... So QA is roughly another naming for Beta? Just curiosity here. Kinda hoping for an official 64-bit from PHP.net sometime. ^_^

    I don't know whether PHP does QA releases for beta builds or not; all of the builds listed on the QA download page right now are release candidate builds, which are more stable than beta builds.
