Changelog

The following changes have been made to classes/functions/methods of this extension.

VersionFunctionDescription
7.0.0setlocaleSupport for the category parameter passed as a string has been removed. Only LC_* constants can be used as of this version.
 substrIf string is equal to start characters long, an empty string will be returned. Prior to this version, FALSE was returned in this case.
5.6.5cryptWhen the failure string "*0" is given as the salt, "*1" will now be returned for consistency with other crypt implementations. Prior to this version, PHP 5.6 would incorrectly return a DES hash.
5.6.0cryptRaise E_NOTICE security warning if salt is omitted.
 html_entity_decodeThe default value for the encoding parameter was changed to be the value of the default_charset configuration option.
 htmlentitiesThe default value for the encoding parameter was changed to be the value of the default_charset configuration option.
 htmlspecialcharsThe default value for the encoding parameter was changed to be the value of the default_charset configuration option.
 substr_comparelength may now be 0.
5.5.21cryptWhen the failure string "*0" is given as the salt, "*1" will now be returned for consistency with other crypt implementations. Prior to this version, PHP 5.5 (and earlier branches) would incorrectly return a DES hash.
5.5.1hex2binA warning is thrown if the input string is invalid hexadecimal string.
5.4.32, 5.5.16ucwordsAdded the delimiters parameter.
5.4.4hex2binA warning is thrown if the input string is of odd length. In PHP 5.4.0 the string was silently accepted, but the last byte was truncated.
5.4.0get_html_translation_tableThe default value for the encoding parameter was changed to UTF-8.
 get_html_translation_tableThe constants ENT_HTML401, ENT_XML1, ENT_XHTML and ENT_HTML5 were added.
 html_entity_decodeThe constants ENT_HTML401, ENT_XML1, ENT_XHTML and ENT_HTML5 were added.
 html_entity_decodeDefault encoding changed from ISO-8859-1 to UTF-8.
 htmlentitiesThe constants ENT_SUBSTITUTE, ENT_DISALLOWED, ENT_HTML401, ENT_XML1, ENT_XHTML and ENT_HTML5 were added.
 htmlentitiesThe default value for the encoding parameter was changed to UTF-8.
 htmlspecialcharsThe default value for the encoding parameter was changed to UTF-8.
 htmlspecialcharsThe constants ENT_SUBSTITUTE, ENT_DISALLOWED, ENT_HTML401, ENT_XML1, ENT_XHTML and ENT_HTML5 were added.
 htmlspecialchars_decodeThe constants ENT_HTML401, ENT_XML1, ENT_XHTML and ENT_HTML5 were added.
 number_formatThis function now supports multiple bytes in dec_point and thousands_sep. Only the first byte of each separator was used in older versions.
5.3.7cryptAdded $2x$ and $2y$ Blowfish modes to deal with potential high-bit attacks.
5.3.4get_html_translation_tableThe encoding parameter was added.
 strip_tagsstrip_tags no longer strips self-closing XHTML tags unless the self-closing XHTML tag is also given in allowable_tags.
5.3.2cryptFixed Blowfish behaviour on invalid rounds to return "failure" string ("*0" or "*1"), instead of falling back to DES.
 cryptAdded SHA-256 and SHA-512 crypt based on Ulrich Drepper's implementation.
5.3.0cryptPHP now contains its own implementation for the MD5 crypt, Standard DES, Extended DES and the Blowfish algorithms and will use that if the system lacks of support for one or more of the algorithms.
 htmlentitiesThe constant ENT_IGNORE was added.
 htmlspecialcharsThe constant ENT_IGNORE was added.
 nl2brAdded the optional is_xhtml parameter. Before this version '<br />' was always inserted.
 setlocaleThis function now throws an E_DEPRECATED notice if a string is passed to the category parameter instead of one of the LC_* constants.
 stristrAdded the optional parameter before_needle.
 strlenPrior versions treated arrays as the string Array, thus returning a string length of 5 and emitting an E_NOTICE level error.
 strstrAdded the optional parameter before_needle.
5.2.5addcslashesThe escape sequences \v and \f were added.
5.2.3htmlentitiesThe double_encode parameter was added.
 htmlspecialcharsThe double_encode parameter was added.
5.2.2 - 5.2.6substrIf the start parameter indicates the position of a negative truncation or beyond, false is returned. Other versions get the string from start.
5.1.0explodeSupport for negative limits was added
 md5_fileChanged the function to use the streams API. It means that you can use it with wrappers, like md5_file('http://example.com/..')
 sha1_fileChanged the function to use the streams API. It means that you can use it with wrappers, like sha1_file('http://example.com/..')
 str_word_countAdded the charlist parameter
 substr_compareAdded the possibility to use a negative offset.
 substr_countAdded the offset and the length parameters
5.0.0strip_tagsstrip_tags is now binary safe.
 strrposThe needle may now be a string of more than one character.
4.3.0stristrstristr was made binary safe.
 strrchrThis function is now binary safe.
