It should be pointed out that most control panel software such as cPanel and Plesk lock you in to a particular PHP version, and it is usually badly out of date. Both of those are running 5.2 and there isn't a clear timeframe for 5.3 adoption.
That's the only reason my organization still uses 5.2; I bet many are in the same boat.

Glad I am not the only one that does not see the logic in dropping support for PHP 5.2...

echoDreamz, I don't disagree with you about the lack of support that MS has provided for this product for the last year+. In fact, if you will read my posts, I have argued on that side of the fence for quite some time.
What I mean was MS is not providing a lot of resources to support the product and I was am thankful they are doing something, because at one point it did appear MS was not going to provide ANY support (some is better than none for us, because if
MS doens't work on this product, then I am going to HAVE to....as we are not about to abandon it now.)

laurin1, my apologies :) I misunderstood what you meant. I also want them to be part of this, be active (like they were when this started). I don't want weekly releases or anything, just some releases every month or so with fixes, improvements etc. Not
1 release, go silent for months and months, then all of a sudden pop up again. We need dedication. I wish I knew C more, I would help out :(.

I am also happy that is it getting attention.
Ms. Law - If you are taking a list of to do items - the various cache sized need to be able to be increased. version 1.2.614 for 5.3 had the ability to change the size - but that apparently was removed - 1.2.1208 doesn't have that ability.

So, 5.4 is out now, any chance to get an updated wincache soon?

I finally have got 5.2 to build. I am now onto testing the fix, and will update the thread when the patch is ready.

The package for 5.2 is now available for download at
I've also refreshed the package for 5.3 which includes a fix for a bug introduced by the previous package.

Thanks Jenny - Excited that wincache is continuing to be developed.
I just tried the new 5.3 version - and it still has the 85 meg max total user cache limit. Is that something that is going to get changed?
Many on the boards, including myself, quickly run out of space and need much more. In a previous version, that limit was removed and more memory could be used, however in the last 2 releases, the limit was put back in.
