PHP 5.3.8 Released

http://www.php.net/archive/2011.php#id2011-08-23-1

This release fixes two bugs:
* Fixed - crypt() returns only the salt for MD5
* Reverted a change in timeout handling restoring PHP 5.3.6 behavior,
which caused mysqlnd SSL connections to hang

The first in the list is the security alert sent out a couple of days ago
advising all to hold off on updating PHP.

Please reply back to this ticket if you found this security alert useful.
