"It's no secret that PHP has changed significantly since the earliest versions of PHP 4 were released almost a decade ago. Indeed, each major revision of PHP has required code changes, as language features were added, modified, and obsoleted. Depending on your PHP code, PHP 6 will be no exception.

"Although PHP 6 isn't yet available as a pre-built package, you can download and install a development snapshot of PHP 6 now to check out the new features and verify your scripts remain functional.
