A Look at PHP5

Here’s a review of the upcoming PHP5. *Loads* of new stuff and it’s going to practically be a whole new language to learn. I can’t wait to start working with the new OO features it’ll have. It should make implementing patterns much easier. I wonder what effect it will have on the “home grown” self-taught PHP industry that’s out there? Those that will learn, will stick with it. The others? They’ll spend their time maintaining their PHP4 applications!
