    PHP 6.0

    Interesting developments in PHP but will we ever see them on any host? They seem to be zooming right along in their development and leaving the hosting community behind.

    1. Remove register_globals completely

    2. Remove magic_quotes_*

    3. Add input filter extension which will include a mechanism for
    application developers to very easily turn it off which would swap
    the raw GPC arrays back in case the site had it turned on by default.

    4. Include an opcode cache by default. A lot of work has gone into
    pecl/apc recently, but I am not hung up on which one goes in.

    5. Remove safe_mode and focus on open_basedir

    6. Remove some stuff that has been marked deprecated since PHP 3/4

    A couple of others that we could consider, but I don't actually think
    wins us much apart from academic purity (which I have never been all
    that keen on) are:

    7. Make identifiers case-sensitive

    8. Remove various function aliases

    Maybe they're trying to make the hosting community keep up and thus make web developers keep up.
