We had a problem… we need to fully support PHP clients with our new server but we know (by experience with the old REAL Server) that PHP extensions are very difficult to maintain and to compile and they require a lot of effort just to port the same code to different platforms.

So we decided to follow a completely different approach and we added native JSON support directly into the server, that means that the php client can be pure php code without the need of a precompile extension and without the need to install anything into your hosting provider (actually it is just a php class with about 100 lines of code).

The new JSON protocol is super lightwave for optimal performance under a web service and having JSON built-into the server will open us a lot of new opportunities (like for example javascript clients, web services and much more).

Hope you like this news!
We plan to release the new json server in few days.
