As we know, Suhosin hardens PHP and adds another layer of security. But unfortunately there is no official release for PHP 5.4/5.5 (that I can find anyway).
So that puts me in a small dilemma. Do I go with the newer PHP 5.4/5.5 which I presume are more secure than the older 5.3, or do I go with the older PHP 5.3 but with the security hardening patch of Suhosin?
Currently on my local machine I am running my code with PHP 5.3.5, so there is nothing inherently in PHP 5.4/5.5 that I need for my scripts to work. Security is paramount in this project though!
What is recommended in this instance? Or does it not matter? Suhosin seems to have some nice patches.
