Beta 3

PHP 5.0.0 beta 3 was released yesterday. They keep adding in new functions - some that I don’t ever imagine using, others that I at least want to try out. Two such examples are php_strip_whitespace() and php_check_syntax(). These functions will strip out the whitespace and comments of a script and check it for parse errors respectively. All told I am really looking forward to the full release of php 5.
