I recently discussed this on the MapServer-users list.  The next MS4W 
PHP change will be to 5.6, as this seems to be the most supported (at 
the moment) version.  Note that this will be major work/effort, as the 
whole stack will have to be upgraded to a new compiler (imagine 
compiling over 100 libraries by hand, to give you an idea of effort), so 
please if you/your organization can help with funding that effort 
contact me directly.  This applies to 7.0 and 5.6, the effort required 
will be very similar.  Contact me if your organization can help with the 
upgrade to 5.6 or 7.0

You can also follow along on this upgrade by adding your user account as 
CC to the corresponding ticket at http://www.ms4w.com/trac/ticket/5

By the way, another MS4W version will be released this week, it is in 
final testing mode.  More news on that soon.

Thanks for using MS4W.
