Need php 5.3.3 at least to consider upgrade to 5.3.5.

Do you think you waste your time by upgrading php version because it's not necessary ? seriously ? Mostly developer work on MAMP and thy mainly need the last version in production for lot of reason :

- Need of new feature.
- Need to test their application on the new version.
- Dependencies require early version.
- etc...

Actually my project won't work on php 5.3.2 and work perfectly on php 5.3.X (X>2) for some reason like old php class constructor style still be active in php 5.3.2 for example.

I just purchased Mamp Pro in order to start developping a Symfony2 project, I found myself very disapointed seeing that php5.3.5 was included but not the and especially the intl extension.. searching for solutions i found this post and i start wondering why there is not any answer from the mamp staff since more than 6 months about this topic wich in my humble opinion is quite important for a lot of developpers.

So if anyone from MAMP staff could answer this what they are planning to do, it would be really appreciated


Ok I Apologize, I just said a bunch of nonsense since php5.3.5 is actually the current version included in mamp ><
I was just upset since the intl extension required for symfony2 is not included, and i did buy mamp pro in order to start developing a symfony2 project, after a long night trying to compile everithing on my own, wich was quite difficult especially with mysql.

So i apologize again to the developpers and just ask if the intl extension is planned to be included in further version of mamp ?
beside of that i have to say that mamp is really powerfull and easy to use
thank you

The PHP development team would like to announce the immediate availability of PHP 5.3.3. It is however something to be aware of. Since Namespaces were not a part of the 5.2 version of PHP, this change has no affect on developers still using 5.2.x either.

If you need the intl-extension, check the following blog-post: ... on-on-mamp

Yes, it worked perfectly, and it only took about 30 minutes to get it all done.

Very nice! (Much better than installing Zend and fiddling with that.)

Thanks for the post!

I think it would be very beneficiary to upgrade MAMP PHP to 5.3.3 or even 5.3.4 (current) since this version include the internationalization extension which is a big upgrade.

If you are not planning on upgrading, maybe you can give a quick instructions on how to install this extension with the current 5.3.2.

Hi, This is Tanim. Nice to meet you.
