PHP's next major release

I have been working some with PHP but mostly as a script language for building blogs, admin interfaces or standard websites with lookups to mysql db's and similar, not too advanced that is. But the reason I keep doing it is that it has so much capability and there is so much information and examples all over the Internet.

PHP has come a long way and already is an object-oriented language. With the new upcoming release (5.3) more interesting things will come (originally intended for release 6) that makes it more competitive and assuring that it will continue being one of the best. Some of the new things you can expect are native MySQL support, variable static calls (like in Java), enhanced error reporting and namespaces (really cool). Read this article for all this information.

An if you want to get started your self, use the following two sites which is close to anything you need, except Google of course ;-)

- W3Schools tutorial
- php.net

God I hate the popups on mouse over on your website. It makes everything painful. Congrats.

Yes, some people feel like you do. Luckily there are a billion other sites for you to visit on the Internet.
Can't believe you wasted that time to tell me...

Yes PHP is a powerful tool for creating interactive and dynamic web pages. To get skilled in PHP, you should have a basic understanding of HTML/XHTML and JavaScript. Now I am using PHP tutorial for my learning
