PHP 4.3.8 released

Beside the champagne throwing release of PHP 5.0, the version 4.3.8 has been released. It's strongly recommended to upgrade to this version, regarding security issues.

Sadly this does not implement GIF creation support. I know (very well) that GIF is not a great format, but there are still people out there who are forced (e.g. by management) to use pretty outdated browsers, which do not support PNG or (not so outdated browsers) which still do not support transparency in PNG.

The GD lib people heavily deny to integrate GIF support again, so the outlook for getting a PHP version which actually supports the creation of GIF seems nearly hopeless... :( Poor souls working under the stated conditions...
