PHP 5.5.1 is now stable (as of today), but wondering what everyone else uses and why?

I'm currently using 5.4 which has been stable for a while now so pretty much everything including Ioncube works with it.

5.3 because that is what comes with CentOS 6.  I hope they make 5.4 or even 5.5 available some day (I prefer to use official packages instead of third-party).

I try to use 5.4 when I have the choice. I use Ubuntu on my VPSes, and a lot of providers' Ubuntu image is 12.04, which only has PHP 5.3, so I use a PPA to get 5.4. I like it a lot (and thus don't mind going through the above hoops) because of two main new features: function return array dereferencing and short array notation. I'm used to both of these from JavaScript, so it's great having them in PHP.

Our new docs team has their own server with some PHP on it for MediaWiki, I have no idea what version or particularly care, as long as it stays away from the mission critical stuff.
