PHPHacks.com:
Upcoming changes in PHP 6.0
September 19, 2006 @ 07:26:02

With great new advancements coming out of PHP with each new version released, the list of things that are being worked toward for PHP 6 bears some repeating for what we have to look forward to. PHPHacks.com has just that posted today.

The PHP world is really excited about the upcoming release of PHP 6.0. Amongst all the uncertainties in any new release, PHP 6.0 seems to be getting rid of three of the earlier troublesome features: register_globals, magic_quotes_gpc and safe_mode. The first was a big security hole, the second messed with the data and made changing environments quite difficult, while the third was usually misread, and provided a false sense of security. There's also quite a lot of work scheduled to do with Unicode.

Other large changes are mentioned as well, like the the addition of new 64-bit integers and that the ereg extension is removed, while the XMLReader, XMLWriter and Fileinfo extensions are added to the core, and by default are on. Check out the entire post for the full listing.
