Running PHP on Heroku with mbstring

Heroku is PasS environment which supports PHP unofficially. It is missing some of extensions initially. One instance is mbstring. However I noticed that mbstring is able to build on heroku run bash and can be loaded from project local php.ini configuration.
I put the mbstring.so on github. If you need it, just copy into your project and put php.ini which include:

extension=/app/www/mbstring.so

Example

This application is running on heroku with mbstring.

Enjoy php on heroku!

3 months have passed from last release. Finally I published zip and tar ball of latest CandyCane. This release fixes various bugs. Particularly account management section got better email support for account activation.
Many new contributors made these progress. They are really great supporter of CandyCane. I will buy a beer each next time I meet them.
