Changelog for phar
Release What has changed?
2.0.0 BC BREAKING RELEASE
BC breaks:
* Phar object Compression API is rewritten. Use Phar::compress() and decompress(),
Phar::compressFiles()/decompressFiles() and PharFileInfo->compress()/decompress().
* phar.extract_list and Phar::getExtractList() are removed

Major feature functionality release
* phar.cache_list allows web-based phar applications to run at equal or faster than
their on-disk equivalent [Greg]
* new default stub allows running of phar-based phars without phar extension [Greg/Steph]
* add support for tar-based and zip-based phar archives [Greg]
* add support for OpenSSL-based true signatures [Greg]
* add support for signatures to tar-based phar archives [Greg]
* add Phar::isFileFormat() [Greg]
* add Phar::convertToExecutable(), Phar::convertToData() [Greg]
* add Phar::compress() [Greg]
* rename Phar::compressAllFiles() to compressFiles(), uncompressAllFiles() to
decompressFiles() [Greg]
* conversion to compressed or to other file formats automatically copies the archive
to a new extension (i.e. ".phar" to ".phar.tar" or ".tar" to ".tar.gz") [Steph]
* add Phar::webPhar() for running a web-based application unmodified
directly from a phar archive [Greg]
* file functions (fopen-based and stat-based) can be instructed to only look for
relative paths within a phar via Phar::interceptFileFuncs()
* add PharData class to allow manipulation/creation of non-executable tar and zip archives. [Steph]
non-executable tar/zip manipulation is allowed even when phar.readonly=1 [Greg]
* paths with . and .. work (phar://blah.phar/a/../b.php => phar://blah.phar/b.php) [Greg]
* add support for mkdir()/rmdir() and support for empty directories to phar file format [Greg]
* add option to compress the entire phar file for phar/tar file format [Greg]
* implement Phar::isCompressed() returning 0, Phar::GZ or Phar::BZ2 [Greg]
* implement Phar::copy(string $from, string $to) [Greg]
* implement Phar::running(), returns path or URL to currently executed phar
* implement Phar::buildFromIterator(Iterator $it[, string $base_directory]) [Greg]

* implement Phar::mount() for mounting external paths or files to locations inside a phar [Greg]
* add Phar::delete() [Greg]

Security addition
* aliases are validated so that they contain no directory separators as intended
* on conversion to other formats, user-supplied aliases are validated
