While PHP5 gaining popularity development of PHP6 is in progress. The main upgrade happens is the Unicode support for almost all php functions. Check the complete upgrade plans on developers meeting notes.
With PHP6 new features we can mix Unicode in code. See the fun.
PHP In your langauge
See PHP developer Andrei Zmievski’s talks on Unicode in PHP6.

With this upgrade possibilities of developing libraries in Unicode languages, and using them to code applications in mother tongue is possible.Coding in Malayalam, Hindi or Arabic will go smooth. Not need to know English to do a computer programming then :) .

After PHP-GTK, it is WinBinder pays my attention towards PHP’s capabilities to build Desktop applications. Unlike PHP-GTK WinBinder is not cross platform. But it enables development of Native windows applications much easier.

WinBinder Technology In 5 easy steps we can create a simple application. I have created a simple XML editor to see how easy the development is.With my application I can create XML files in complete hierarchical way. I am using the Tree Control and Tab Control to make the application. GUI is developed with WinBinder’s form editor – which is also made with PHP.

It will we cool to have a PHP IDE in PHP itself. That is not so complicated as well.

You can download the presentation that explains the proccess here.

There exists a php compiler that uses some PECL packages to make bytecode from PHP and makes exe files from WinBinder Applications. It is called phpc. Packaging of standalone PHP windows applications are thus goes much easier.

WinBinder as default is not Object oriented. But Object oriented libraries are available in community. WbObjects , Classes from Jonasjohn etc are useful.
