PHP5 has some great new features - right, pretty much OO only - but this was
the weak point in PHP and it got time for this to change.
I'm not expecting Horde to actually use those new features, I'm just worried
about compatibility.

Horde 2.2.4 was producing a whole bunch of warnings under PHP5, that's why I
was asking. But sounds good, your experiences.

and as Jan says, it already fully supports it. Don't ask me how the
connection over webdav is done.

sounds good. I'm going to check it out tomorrow.

thanks a lot for all your answers!
take care
