As the first face-to-face meeting of the PHP core developers, this conference established a firm synergy and congenial relationship among the developers, who have been working together on the code since 1996."

"The core developers established milestones for the release of PHP 4.0 Beta 4, scheduled to be the final beta prior to Release Candidate 1. The attendees also decided that PHP 4.0 will bundle the MySQL client library in the standard distribution, significantly reducing the complexity of setting up an environment for developing database-driven dynamic web pages...."
