You can work with XML documents as Objects out of the bag. Whoot! I'm
personally looking really forward to ease of implementation in that regard.

By the way - anyone know if any webhosting companies provide "beta"
servers with PHP5 installed for a little price?

(Okay call me lazy - but whatever :D)

The number 5 is a nicer number. Sits nicely between 1 and 10 ;)
Plus it's 1 extra than 4

I'd love to see some tutorial and examples using this new version of PHP,
especially with the latest MySQL4 and Apache2. Thanks

I have a Linux/Apache server running PHP Version 5.0.0b2.

Space on it is relatively inexpensive - $4.00/Mb/Year; and there's
lots of room if you need it.

It does domain hosting and mail as well - if that's what you want;
though more facilities may cost a bit extra to set up.

Follow the instructions in my signature if you want more details.
