Christians Tagebuch PEAR 1.10.0dev1 brings PHP 7 compatibility! (25.7.2015, 11:50)

The new PEAR installer release adds PHP 7 support while dropping support for PHP 4 - 5.3. It also fixes a nasty SSL issue that made it hard to use on PHP 5.6. With the update, strict warnings about static calls to a non-static PEAR::isError() are a thing of the past.

I've just published the first preview version: PEAR 1.10.0dev1.

You can upgrade your existing PEAR version with the following command:

$ pear upgrade PEAR-1.10.0dev1

Pre-release versions of go-pear.phar and install-pear-nozlib.phar can be temporarily be found at

Please report any bugs you find on the PEAR bug tracker or on the pear-dev mailing list.

Christians Tagebuch Recent PEAR package releases (22.7.2014, 21:12)

I wasn't idle since the release of PEAR 1.9.5 but did a bit of work on my PEAR packages.

Net_WebFinger version 0.4.0 now supports the final WebFinger RFC 7033. On pfefferle's request I made both Net_WebFinger and its dependency XML_XRD available on packagist and thus installable via composer: pear/net_webfinger and pear/xml_xrd

Some minutes ago I released version 0.4.0 of the OpenID package. It fixes 6 bugs and adds a new feature.

Christians Tagebuch PEAR 1.9.5dev1 released (28.6.2014, 14:49)

This article has originally been published on the PEAR blog:

PEAR 1.9.5dev1 released @ blog.pear.php.net .

I've just released a preview of the upcoming PEAR installer version 1.9.5: PEAR 1.9.5dev1.

Version 1.9.5 will be the first release of the PEAR installer since 3 years, and thus needs quite some testing before declaring it stable. Instead of using “RC1″, we opted for “dev1″ to keep the stability below alpha, so that upgrading normal packages in alpha/beta state do not automatically give you a potentially unstable PEAR version.

You can upgrade your existing PEAR version with the following command:

$ pear upgrade PEAR-1.9.5dev1

Pre-release versions of go-pear.phar and install-pear-nozlib.phar can be temporarily be found at

Please report any bugs you find on the PEAR bug tracker or on the pear-dev mailing list.
