Overall Agenda

  • PHP 5.3 status, wrap-up, and final release plan
  • Considerations for PHP 5.4: whether necessary, what to include, etc.
  • PHP 6 issues:
    • Solving performance issues (strings with [], etc.)
    • Resolving the current TODO list:
      • Finalize the scope of features: traits, 64 bit integer, etc.
      • What can be left until 6.1?
      • How do we clean up the codebase/cruft as much as possible?
        • What to do with functions that do POSIX locales (such as strcoll())?
      • Where can we break BC to make things better?
      • Can we unify certain functionality, i.e. making all array operations work with ArrayObject interface, etc.
    • Figuring out how to ease migration:
      • How do we test prominent codebases out there?
      • What steps can we take to let people write code in 5.3 that will run transparently on 6?
      • Etc.
  • Other things:
    • PDO 2?
    • Scalar typehints
    • 4 different zend_extension_ts lines
