Zend Announces General Availability of Zend Server 5.0

Zend Technologies has announced the general availability of Zend Server 5.0, a major new version of the company’s PHP Web application server. New Code Tracing technology in Zend Server 5.0 enables PHP developers and administrators to slash problem resolution time by up to 50 percent. For the first time, users have visibility into the behavior of their code in production environments, with the ability to pinpoint the root cause of application issues quickly and eliminate the time-consuming, and sometimes near impossible, task of recreating problems in order to resolve them.
