    The code in PEAR is partitioned in "packages". Each package is a separate project with its own development team, version number, release cycle, documentation and a defined relation to other packages (including dependencies). And talking about the changes in PHP versions here they are, php3 released in 1998 having features like accessing diff databse servers,protocols,supporting some object orientation concepts. php4 released in 1999.
