As someone who hasn't yet played with PHP6, I'd value your comments:
Is there anything new from the PHP6 world that I should add to "PHP" on
http://linuxmafia.com/kb/Security/ ? That's my page of recommended
security-sensitive settings to check in /etc/php?/apache/php.ini,
believed to be fairly comprehensive through PHP5.
Thank you for any improvements.
(Yes, I do need to improve that page, particularly to detail what each
setting is about and what is likely to break.)
