PHP 7.0 RC6 was released today for what may be the final release candidate ahead of PHP 7.0.0's official premiere in two weeks.

PHP 7.0 RC6 was released this morning as the 11th pre-release of PHP 7 and it brings more bug-fixes (10 in total) over the earlier release candidates. PHP 7's primary feature is greatly improved performance along with providing consistent 64-bit support, error reworking, new language features, anonymous classes support, and much more.
