Public Beta

Keep in mind that this is a beta release and should not be used in

production. A beta license is included in the download that will allow you

to use the beta version through the end of the year.


Q. Do I need to have PHP installed?

A. No, everything you need is in the plug-in.


Q. Why did you create separate PPC and Intel versions for the Mac?

A. Creating a Universal Binary version significantly increases plug-in size

because PHP has to be complied for both platforms. We may release a

Universal Binary if there is demand for it.


Q. Will you support future versions of PHP?

A. Yes, we plan to offer updated versions of the plug-in as new stable

releases of PHP become available. These updates will be available free of



Q. Do you take requests?

A. Yes, if you find a PHP function that isn't supported in the plug-in, let

us know and we'll see what we can do.


Q. When will the commercial release be available?

A. We want to make sure the plug-in is battle tested before commercial

release. We're shooting for late fall but the beta license is good through

the end of the year.


Q. Is pricing available?

A. Not yet.
