This is expected. It's in the RFC and migration guide. We had to treat these 
like true expressions so various formatting functions could be introduced.

Subject: MapServer 6.0 Beta 1 - Expression Parser question


To get the expression parser to label my layers as pre 6.0, I¹ve had to
change my TEXT statement from



TEXT ( "[LOCATION]"+" "+"[OBSERVED]"+"[UNITS]" +"$"+"[OBSTIME]" )

And put quotes around the string fields. Is this expected behavior or is
this a bug with the new expression parser?
