You've probably seen this, but then again, this is "In Case You Missed It" so here goes: if you haven't upgraded to PHP 4.4.1, then you need to - it includes some security fixes you need to be aware of. Go grab it at http://www.php.net/downloads.php#v4 and read the changelog if you like, although this is strictly a maintenance release.
...to go back in the XML-RPC water. Netcraft (and others) are reporting that although the XMLRPC security flaw that was discovered months ago was patched, there are still exploits being reported. Please, we are begging you. Upgrade your software. NOW. Interesting info from the Internet Storm Center on this: http://isc.sans.org/diary.php?date=2005-11-05.
In a recent announcement, SourceForge lets us know that project admins will have access to multiple MySQL 4.1.x databases, as well as three separate database accounts (read-only, read-write, and admin access). But wait, there's more! Admins will also have access to a centralized version of phpMyAdmin for ease in managing projects. To read the official release, go to http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?forum_id=508547. Thanks, SourceForge!
Zend Conference Wrap Up
In case you just can't get enough of the Zend Conference, or if you want to relive the memories, they have posted the official conference photos (all 800), as well as a final schedule with links to the presentation overheads (where available). You can reach these by going to http://zend.kbconferences.com. Apparently this one was such a success that they are also announcing next year's conference, to be held at the Doubletree Hotel in San Jose, CA October 17-20, 2006. Mark your calendars and start saving your pennies now, so you won't miss out next year.

Windows/PECL Users Take Note
In a recent blog post, Wez Furlong reminds us of pecl4win (http://pecl4win.php.net) which is designed to provide PECL extensions compiled for Windows in a central place. You can view all the extensions, or view them by the version of PHP you're running. A great resource that you should check out if you're running Windows.
I would be remiss in my duties if I didn't include what's new at PEAR and PECL. Recent PEAR releases include:
This package provides access to logical bitstreams packaged within an ogg file.
