    A new PocketMine-MP Beta Build has been released!
    Alpha_1.4dev-491 beta6, for Minecraft: PE v0.9.5 alpha

    Will plugins break?
    This beta doesn't change the API version, so it is 1.3.1. Plugins developed in a responsible way following the API are fully compatible. However, it bumps the required PHP version to 5.6, involving changes and adding new features to the language. See more on the "Notable changes" section

    Should I use this Beta Build?
    There are three types of builds: stable, beta and development. A beta build is meant for test servers, and plugin developers that want a more stable environment. If you are running a production server, it's recommended to stay away from these builds. If you really want to use it, please test on a separate server before doing the changes on the server.

    Where can I submit bugs?
    Please do not submit features not implemented. They will implemented in future beta builds, and doesn't help the developers. If there is a true bug you found, please submit it on the Bug Tracker. Please search in it for duplicated bugs. Do not request help or plugin support there. Provide as much information as you can, and keep titles short and informative.

    Notable changes
    This build fixes several important issues present on the beta5, and fixes entity physics so they don't lag the server when spawned. It also fixes an important lag issue related to player movement.
    As an important change, it bumps the required PHP version to 5.6. Before it was 5.4, so the team (and plugin developers) were limited by the language features they could use. You can see further details on the Official PHP migration docs, for PHP 5.5 and PHP 5.6. Code on this build has been modified to use the new features in places they would be more efficient, increasing the performance.

    For a more detailed changelog, check the details page

    Also, remember to give feedback :)

    We know about the Android issue, DO NOT ASK ABOUT THE ANDROID ISSUE.
    It's caused by PHP, not PocketMine-MP

    Feedback:
      Improvements:
        - You can now use all the hotbar slots as opposed to only the first one; that drove me insane.
        - Players now move at a very nice framerate; they used to move at about 2 FPS with their heads barely poking out of the ground.
        - Chat/command lag is completely gone now. :)
      Notable-Issues:
        - Lighting is still bugged.
        - When leaving a server, MCPE crashes.
        - PocketMine-MP still isn't named LDX-MP. :P XD

    Finally php 5.6! Are you planning on using phpdbg instead of the xdebug?

    Jeez is this guy releasing like a maniac! Good work Shog, I knew you were putting in hours on this because I see it every day. You literally have hundreds of people relying on you alone. I take my hat off to you, sir.

    Thanks for the releases!

    Yeah Shoghi I really want to say thanks for all the work you put it. I check the github repo about 15 times a day (not joking, I really do). Always seeing you pushing commits and KILLING dat issues closed button. Much appreciated.

    phpdbg is more like gdb, and is a different PHP binary. xdebug allows profiling code, to highlight performance issues :)

    The only point of xdebug on production servers is for the backtrace in the crashlogs right? Isn't there something else that can be used for that so production servers don't need xdebug that only slows down their server?

    It does not slow down the server. It would slow it down if profiling was enabled all times, but that must be enabled via command-line parameters by the user, so you don't have to worry about that.

    You do have to worry about it.

    This is a speed test that calculates perlin noise: http://pastebin.com/JJN77zvv
    I tested this php script 3 times with and 3 times without xdebug on a windows 8 x64 pc.
    The php binaries and extensions of a fresh installation with the pocketmine installer were used to test this.

    Output of the speed test with xdebug:
    24.224385023117
    24.162172079086
    24.310651329401

    Output of the speed test without xdebug:
    5.4529111385345
    5.0328269004822
    5.0016131401062

    When Shoghi has enough time, he's going to compile PHP 5.6 for Linux ARM and Android. Don't rush him, he's busy.
