PDO changes in PHP 5.2.12 and 5.3.1
With the release of PHP 5.2.12 and 5.3.1, a change to the way PDO constructs objects was made. This change reversed the way it had been done up until now and broke the functionality that Habari relied on. For more detail on this change you can follow the thread started on PHP-DEV Mailing List.
Many bug fixes and improvements have been made since the last release, but as with any piece of software issues and enhancement requests remain. For full details see Habari's change management system.
