Some good changes are coming to PHP6, it seems (for those who still care about PHP). A selection:

  • register_globals will be gone.
  • magic_quotes will also disappear.
  • $HTTP_*_VARS has been removed, in favour for $_GET, $_POST, etc.
  • E_STRICT error messages are included in E_ALL errors.
  • Better Unicode Support.
  • safe_mode is being removed.

Thank you PHP people.
