It seems like PHP 5's release candidate 3 will be the last of the series, so can we expect the final release soon? ... The answer is Yes! The final release is expected somewhere around mid of June. The new version promises to have some long awaited controls for better handling of objects. Though, I most excited about the inclusion of JAVA-like exception handling. The earlier version's had no such support; rather a nascent error handling mechanism was the sole weapon. With a shining new Zend 2 Engine, the version 5 promises a lot. Whether it delivers as expected, is yet to be seen..., but I among the hopeful ones.
