getID3() 1.8.0 available (2010-Nov-23)

Sorry for the long delay. getID3() v1.8.0 is finally released, and PHP5 compatible. It does not claim to be bug-free (although it does contain some bugfixes, see the changelog). It is essentially v1.7.10 (from 26-Apr-2009) with two key fixes for PHP5:
  • ereg* functions changed to preg* equivalents
  • functions declared static as needed to work as they're called
If you're using PHP4, stick with v1.7.10
If you're using PHP5, upgrade to 1.8.0

If you've posted about a bug in the last 18 months, and this release doesn't address it a fix will likely be included in v1.8.1 in the next short while (shorter than 1.5 years, I promise :)
