php5 is just version evolution, like mysql5. they really added some stuff to make php easier like integrated functions to validate email addresses. umm, bad example. well, I installed it on my production server and I like it.
Ruby/Rails is just hype. Unless all major web hosts suddenly start installing Ruby instead of PHP, it's not worth my time.
AJAX... well, I've tried a few things here and there, mostly in connection with Firefox extensions. it's pretty hard to make the code work in all flavours of modern browsers.
