API Stream Wrappers – Week 10

Ah, there’s nothing like the smell of fresh tests in the morning. I submitted a couple of small hacks for WP Automated tests to add basic code coverage options. After looking through that code though I think it’s safe to say that it needs to be rewritten 😦 Hint hint for those looking into GSoC next year!

You’ve probably already heard the announcement that PHP4 and MySQL4 support will be dropped in the near future. This is fantastic news on multiple levels–one of them being that stream wrappers require PHP5+, so this is good news indeed.

This next week I’m going to finish off as much of the tests as I can and try to workaround the remaining shortcomings in the testing suite. Then I hope to toy around with some demonstration wrappers 🙂
