Improvements to the Form helper (http://codeigniter.com/user_guide/helpers/form_helper.html)
Added is_php() to Common functions (http://codeigniter.com/user_guide/general/common_functions.html) to facilitate PHP version comparisons
Modified show_error() (http://codeigniter.com/user_guide/general/errors.html) to allow sending of HTTP server response codes, and all internal uses now send proper status codes.
Numerous bug fixes

Version 1.7.2 has been baking in the subversion for quite some time, and has been compatible with PHP 5.3.0 since late July, but many users understandably haven’t been running from the in-development version. While I’d have liked to have had time to add a few more “big ticket” items to this release, making it 1.8, time is a cruel mistress. Many of our users develop on Macs, and OS X Snow Leopard ships with PHP 5.3.0, so we felt is was more important to push out this stable maintenance release instead of waiting for an even later date - it’s been almost seven months since a refresh, afterall. But there are still a few good surprises, and welcome changes. Enjoy! (http://codeigniter.com/downloads/)
