Read this article to learn more about this less known PHP 5.4 optimization and what you need to do to make your PHP code take advantage of this optimization to run faster spending less memory.
The article also talks about a speculation of what PHP 6 and Zend Engine 3 can be in the future using explicitly declared types of variables and function return values to generate code that makes PHP applications run much faster.

The latest benchmarks seem to indicate that PHP applications compiled by Phalanger execute noticeably faster than when they are executed by the official PHP implementation based on Zend engine, even when a caching extension is used.
Read this article to learn how Phalanger works and what lessons can be learned to make the official PHP implementation run at least as fast, eventually in PHP 6 based on Zend Engine 3.

On one side there are developers that hate PHP apparently because they do not quite understand how it works. They do not respect PHP and prefer other languages. So they lose many opportunities to make good money from the PHP market, which has so many high paying jobs for qualified developers.
On the other side there are developers that love PHP but do not take full advantage of the language because they are not fully aware of all they can do with it.
This article attempts to clarify some of the most common wrong ideas that many developers have about PHP.
Read the article to the end, so you may eventually start having a better perspective about PHP and take advantage of the opportunities that this language and the PHP ecosystem can provide you.
