I just noticed that php 5.1 beta1 was released yesterday, so I thought I'd pass 
along the good word.

 From the website:

Some of the key improvements of PHP 5.1 include:

     * PDO (PHP Data Objects) - A new native database abstraction layer 
providing performance, ease-of-use, and flexibility.
     * Significantly improved performance including a new Zend Engine II 
execution architecture.
     * The PCRE extension has been updated to PCRE 5.0.
     * Many more improvements including lots of new functionality & many bug 
fixes, especially in regards to SOAP, streams and SPL.

I'm installing it now on my box at home.  I'm curious to see how this new db 
abstraction is going to work.  Has anyone heard anything about it?  It's all 
news to me.
