Welcome back to another installment of ICYMI! This week we saw:
PHP 6.0 is on the Horizon
Many things have been floating around with regards to PHP 6.0, and I'll do my best to tread lightly on this topic as it's
obviously very far from being released, and there is much discussion yet to be had. The issues that are being discussed include the support for Unicode characters, the
removal of PEAR and a few other issues mostly to address security concerns.
Rasmus Lerdorf posted his wish list on the php internals development list with some pretty radical suggestions (at least as far as BC goes) - http://news.php.net/php.internals/17883. If you'd like to keep up
with the development of PHP 6.0, you can visit http://news.php.net/php.internals.
