PHP New Releases: 5.4.9 and 5.3.19

PHP team has released two branches of PHP 5.4.x and 5.3.x which includes bug fixes for over 15 bugs since last month. Unfortunately, although the download page has a link to the mirror site, it seems that at this moment, most of the mirror site hasn't catch up with this update and most of the mirror site used will point to a not found page.

I finally decided to use their GIT repository to get faster access to the release as i can clone their repository and match it to the version i have by using the git checkout <branch-name> and compile a newer version even if it's not yet released, as long as it has been tagged.

The ChangeLog for PHP 5.4.9 and 5.3.19 is already updated though.
