PHP5 required for SecurityImages 4.3.0
I did not see that I was using a feature only available in PHP5 while coding the class administrator/components/com_securityimages/classSecurityimagesSession.php (Singleton holding database connections)
And this PHP5 and was looking at how the database connection is done in #Joomla! 1.5. I am providing a patch for that that will allow all of you to run SecurityImages on PHP4 and PHP5, download SecurityImages 4.3.1
Remember: PHP4 is discontinued:
As mentioned in this post on PHP.net the PHP4 life cycle is finally coming to a close:
Today it is exactly three years ago since PHP 5 has been released. In those three years it has seen many improvements over PHP 4. PHP 5 is fast, stable & production-ready and as PHP 6 is on the way, PHP 4 will be discontinued.
The PHP development team hereby announces that support for PHP 4 will continue until the end of this year only. After 2007-12-31 there will be no more releases of PHP 4.4. We will continue to make critical security fixes available on a case-by-case basis until 2008-08-08. Please use the rest of this year to make your application suitable to run on PHP 5.
+ You can expect 25% more speed just by going to PHP5.

Since the launch of GoPHP5.org, over 100 software projects and over 200 web hosts have come on board to support the adoption of PHP 5.2.
