Good Points of PHP 6

> Improvements of performance to support the opcode page caching and developing of the alternative PHP cache into the center of the PHP to offer native appliance caching.
> UTF-8 Native support to the core power of the php6 offering internationalization to all the functions of the string and languages that are existing as APIs. This was a very huge job and this is the reason why it took four years to complete.
> It has better support for the gate and jump opcodes to send processing send code to particular labels, which are defined by the programmer as in Java, C, and C++ etc.
> Magic quotes are dropped completely from the production line of PHP.
These are the few features which PHP 6 is going to have. But you will have to wait for the PHP 6. There are plenty of reasons for the PHP 6 delay. The one reason for the delay is that the features meant for the PHP 6 has been implemented in the PHP 5.4 which was released in the year 2011.

But these habits are caused by the development. He is responsible because the developer is using it in the application. PHP 6 has great features and it is will be good for the developers to take full advantage of the PHP 6. Here are some of the advantages explained of the PHP 6:
