PHP 5.1.0

PHP 5.1.0 is finally out!

And no, you won't see this in Portage anytime soon. It has a couple of problems that are being discussed over at the php-dev mailinglist and it seems 5.1.1 will come out soon, we'll wait for 5.1.1 before considering its addition to the Portage tree. For the ones who really want the bleeding-edge, try out the PHP 5.1.0 ebuild we have in our PHP Overlay. But don't complain if it breaks stuff, it's still in testing! ;)

Also, thanks to Stuart, we finally have php-select, the replacement for eselect-php, wich will be part of the php-toolkit package.
The next days will see a massive update of all new-style PHP related packages (dev-php4/* is already done), and new revisions of dev-lang/php to fix a minor security problem and updates to use php-toolkit instead of eselect-php. That's all for now, cu later!
