We are pleased to share with you that our PHP library for easy integration of, for instance, video encoding into your app has received a substantial overhaul.

The complete list of bugfixes and improvements is quite long, so we'll summarize some of the most important ones:

  • Support for E_STRICT mode
  • Improved documentation
  • Improved error handling
  • Support for signed GET requests
  • Support for HTTPS

In addition to this, v1.0.0 introduces a few big upgrades that break backwards compatibility:

  • Convert to namespaced PHP (PHP 5.3 required)
  • Add support for Composer

We owe a great debt of gratitude to Raymond Julin for making this happen.

We have also submitted the project to Packagist so you can now include our SDK by just adding these lines to your project's composer.json:

{
    "require": {
        "transloadit/php-sdk": "1.*"
    }
}

..and run:

wget http://getcomposer.org/composer.phar && \
php composer.phar install

Pretty cool, right? This will also keep you up to date with any non-backwards-compatibility-breaking-1.0 version that we release. :smile:

For people who cannot upgrade (perhaps because they are still on PHP 5.2) the old versions remain available on GitHub. However, with all these goodies, we certainly recommend that you take the 1.0+ plunge!

We hope you will enjoy these changes, but don't hesitate to let us know if you find anything wrong with them.
