"Quality Scripting Engine Revolutionizes PHP."

"The PHP Association has announced the release of PHP 4.0, a significant accomplishment realized by the international community of PHP developers. PHP is built around the Zend Engine developed by Andi Gutmans and Zeev Suraski, co-founders of Zend Technologies Ltd. The Zend Engine features a complete restructuring of the way PHP processes code-though it features backward compatibility with PHP 3. Zend Technologies remains committed to continuing improvements on the Zend Engine for the open-source PHP development community."

"The Zend Engine speeds the performance of PHP 4.0, making it many times faster than PHP 3. This performance benefit was accomplished by changing the execution paradigm from an execute-while-parsing mode to a compile-then-execute mode."
