|Just want to clarify; PHP 6 is not scrapped or cancelled. Development on PHP has not been halted.|
What has happened is that the developers have decided the current approach to PHP 6 is not a good one, and are therefore considering alternate ways of handling for instance Unicode in the next version of PHP.
See this link for details:

|Right, what was canceled is the PHP 6 trunk, which apart from native Unicode support that was dropped for now, became what will be known as PHP 5.4.|
This means that the planned PHP 6 features will be in PHP 5.4 except for native Unicode support.
