We are proud to announce the release of phc 0.2.0, an open source PHP
compiler with support for plugins, and source-to-source
transformations. This is the first release which can compile PHP
scripts to executables. Features:

        * Compile PHP source into an (optimized) executable.
        * Analyse, modify or refactor PHP scripts using C++ plugins.
        * Convert PHP into a well-defined XML format, process it with your
own tools, and convert it back to PHP.
        * Operate on ASTs, simplified ASTs, or 3-address code.
        * Analyse or optimize PHP code using an SSA-based IR (in the
dataflow branch - very experimental).

phc can be downloaded from http://phpcompiler.org/downloads.html. The
ChangeLog is too long to post here, please see

We are also interested in attracting contributors to phc. Please see
http://phpcompiler.org/contribute.html. We need people with all sorts
of backgrounds, and previous compiler experience is not required.
