I thought this should be an interesting topic to post up. Couple of weeks ago Oracle together with PHP community has released a BETA version of oci8 extension for PHP that adds new Oracle 11g functionality. It adds two small little tiny features that should make quite a difference for PHP developers using Oracle:
1. DRCP support - this is a new feature that is part of Oracle 11g Server. This is the client support implementation for PHP.
2. FAN events support for PHP.

I know it's not much, but it's already making quite a noise. Also somebody has already went and did some benchmarks to see what this means to have DRCP on or off and how much of a difference it can make.

First of all a link to the PECL page where you can download and get more information on OCI8 package:

Here is a press release that covers the BETA release and what that means to PHP community:

And here are some of the first benchmarks that I found of the new DRCP feature running inside VMWare:

Thank you and enjoy.
