personally I don't like "0.63 works so I use this version". First it
doesn't help solving the php problem second you cannot use 0.63 forever!
We release afters year(s) with many fixes so is better to report any
problem to help you using a newer release. We stopped patching 0.63 so
you won't see many advantage and even security fixes in 0.63! I remember
I wrote a test for empty and blank strings for php and actually is
working so either 0.82 or patched 0.64 should work (see patches at

James... I personally don't remember any stop-over for releasing...
