I'm giving a PHP course next semester (3 hours all saturdays for 22

now!). So, my plans of teaching PHP 5.2 are starting to change, and I
think it's a good idea to teach them 5.3 already.

Does it _really_ matter which one?  I can't imagine there are that many
revolutionary changes in a dot-release.

Given the naming of PHP versions of PHP-x.y.z, I would agree that not much changes between versions at the .z level. But at the .y level there are usually significant changes.

Coming to a PHP 5.3 near you are the following notable features:

    - namespaces
    - closures
    - late static binding
    - garbage collector to handle cyclic references
    - PHAR
    - goto
