MapServer 5.0 has a bunch of mapfile changes and a few deprecated
members and methods in MapScript. I think ka-Map's use of PHP MapScript
is fairly simple stuff so there may not be any problem with the scripts,
mostly with mapfiles.
That being said, I didn't try ka-Map with 5.0 and don't think I'll have
time anytime soon. Someone should try it with an eye on the migration
guide and report their success/failures here.
Um... I just thought of one thing: the scale -> scaledenom change may
have an impact on ka-Map since it probably uses them. The old scale
members still exist in PHP MapScript but are deprecated so ka-Map should
switch to use the new scaledenom members when it aims to support 5.0.
