That's a tricky subject. Actually, PHP 6 started appearing in books and in book titles maybe four years ago, including mine. Second, PHP 6 disappeared. The PHP developers ran into too many hurdles in creating PHP 6 and eventually abandoned it. Most of the features they had been working on have since been added to PHP 5.x. But, right now, PHP 6 does not exist. Learning PHP 5 is only option.
