Congratulations on the birth of a great new upgrade!

In regards to the issues with PHP4.4, I had the same issue with I
installed it on Debian earlier.   Frustrated, I just installed the new
version of MS4W and this is what I did to make it work without the
NOTICE displaying..

Edit the php.ini file as follows (in the Apache/cgi-bin folder)

	1.  Comment out the error_reporting line where Notices are
turned on. (; is the comment for php.ini files)

			;error_reporting  =  E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE

	2.  Turn off Error Reporting

			display_errors = Off

	3.  Turn on Error Logging
			log_errors = On

Both steps 2 and 3 are recommended by the Chameleon-Admin tool :-)

A new MS4W version is available (1.3.0) at 

Notable changes are:

         - upgraded libcurl to 7.15.0 in cgi/mapscript (bug 1177)
         - upgraded GDAL/OGR to 1.3.1
         - upgraded PHP to 4.4.0 (bug 1179)
         - upgraded apache to 2.0.55
         - added recent gdal reference files
         - cleaned proj directory
         - created rSt/html version of install document

You may want to read the PHP 4.4.0 official release notes 
(http://www.php.net/release_4_4_0.php).  A side effect of this security 
fix is that a specific type of PHP notice is now thrown according to new

referencing rules.  For example, our testing on Windows found that 
Chameleon 2.2 templates display 'Notice: Only variables should be 
assigned by reference...' and these new notices could not be turned off 
(frustrating).  In this case a new point release of Chameleon will 
likely be required.

Please let the list know if there are any problems with this MS4W 
release.  thanks.
