5.3.2cryptAdded SHA-256 and SHA-512 crypt based on Ulrich Drepper's implementation.
 cryptFixed Blowfish behaviour on invalid rounds to return "failure" string ("*0" or "*1"), instead of falling back to DES.

 htmlentitiesThe constant ENT_IGNORE was added.
 htmlspecialcharsThe constant ENT_IGNORE was added.

 setlocaleThis function now throws an E_DEPRECATED notice if a string is passed to the category parameter instead of one of the LC_* constants.

5.2.3htmlentitiesThe double_encode parameter was added.

 strip_tagsstrip_tags is now binary safe.
 strrposThe offset parameter was introduced.
 strrposThe needle may now be a string of more than one character.
4.3.3str_replaceThe behaviour of this function changed. In older versions a bug existed when using arrays as both search and replace parameters which caused empty search indexes to be skipped without advancing the internal pointer on the replace array. This has been corrected in PHP 4.3.3, any scripts which relied on this bug should remove empty search values prior to calling this function in order to mimic the original behavior.
 substr_replaceAll parameters now accept arrays.
4.3.0implodeThe glue parameter became optional.
 setlocalePassing multiple locales became possible.
 str_rot13The behaviour of this function was fixed. Before this fix, the str was also modified, as if it was passed by reference.
