I received an email from Hostgator that now they provide PHP version 5.3, 5.4 , and 5.5 in my hosting machine.
So I went ahead to enable Phalcon on each of the PHP versions, compiled Phalcon module for each PHP version in my Virualbox CentOS linux.
I noticed that the Phalcon uses much less memory under 5.4 and 5.5. It uses like 1.5 MB under 5.3, and now it uses 800K memory space. Cool!
Speedwise, I can hardly notice much differences, but it did feel that 5.4 and 5.5 are faster than 5.3.
I am sharing them with you! Please enjoy.

php.ini is located.
