Announcing: MapGuide Open Source 3.1 Beta 2

Here's the 2nd beta of MapGuide Open Source 3.1

The main change in this release is the "emergency" upgrade of the bundled PHP from 5.5 to 5.6.

This was done because the 5.5 series of PHP went end of life on July 10th. It wouldn't look good to ship the new version of MapGuide with a bundled version of PHP that is no longer supported. If you work with PHP in your MapGuide application, please observe any changes between 5.5 and 5.6 and migrate your application code accordingly (note that the MapGuide API is still the same here, the migration refers to any surrounding PHP code/libraries you may be using on top).

Besides the bundled PHP change, this beta includes the following changes:
The explicit property list changes are to allow tools like buffer/query/etc to better work against certain relational FDO providers where a "select * from table" query may "leak" out column types that the FDO provider may not properly handle (and would normally be hidden in any class definitions returned by the provider)
