There are few interesting talk going about PHP 6.0. The major change in this release will be the Unicode support.
In the email that Rasmus sent to the PHP internals he has outlined few things about spring cleaning and getting rid of some features in PHP.
Among that removing register_globals completely and removing magic_quotes_* is quite a good thing though will have major effect on a lot of applications. Specially lot of hosting companies will face serious issue when it comes to removing register_globals as most applications they use on the register_globals. But all these changes need to be done at some stage and it will be our duty to be prepared when the time comes to migrate.
