Amfphp 1.9 Beta

Patrick released a huge update to Amfphp a few days ago. I only just got the chance to play with it and it looks awesome. The new JSON support is perfect for a little somethin' somethin' I'm working on and the new Flex-based service browser has great potential. I especially like how the JSON support is backwards compatible with the slower PHP-based JSON parser as well as the new C-based parser in PHP 5.2.0.

The most important thing is that, with the addition of JSON, I can now see Ajax developers using Amfphp too. It's now possible to use the same service in JS and Flash/Flex. That's going to a real boon for sites that use a combination of JS and Flash/Flex too.

Thanks to Patrick, Amfphp is going from strength to strength and I'm looking forward to contributing to the project a bit more over the coming weeks myself.
