PHP 5.0.0 Released!

[13-Jul-2004] The PHP team is proud to announce the final release of PHP 5!

Some of the key features of PHP 5 include:
The Zend Engine II with a new object model and dozens of new features.
XML support has been completely redone in PHP 5, all extensions are now  
focused around the excellent libxml2 library ( /).
A new SimpleXML extension for easily accessing and manipulating XML as PHP  
objects. It can also interface with the DOM extension and vice-versa.
A brand new built-in SOAP extension for interoperability with Web Services.
A new MySQL extension named MySQLi for developers using MySQL 4.1 and  
later. This new extension includes an object-oriented interface in  
addition to a traditional interface; as well as support for many of  
MySQL's new features, such as prepared statements.
SQLite has been bundled with PHP. For more information on SQLite, please  
visit their website.
Streams have been greatly improved, including the ability to access  
low-level socket operations on streams.
And lots more...

Gosh, it's all too exciting. Does anyone have any thoughts as to how
quickly PHP 5 will be adopted by the "larger" hosting services?

I was wondering when someone was going to post this... I got it
installed last night, but haven't gotten around to using it yet. ;)
