For Cyber Monday, we’re offering PHP 8.0 for free! Go download it today! https://www.php.net/releases/8.0/en.php
All of PHP 7.2 and earlier are now EOL! These versions will no longer receive security updates or bug fixes. It’s time to upgrade! https://php.net/eol.php
Note that PHP 7.2 is EOL in 3 days. After that, it will no longer receive security updates from the PHP project team. Upgrade now!
I was kinda worried that some bit of the php.net website wasn't going to cope well with the new major version number (due to some quirks in our data structures), but it carried on like a champ.
PHP is really good at running really bad code really well.... even when that bad code is the php.net website.
We had a great panel of people last night at azPHP! All about PHP8!
We recently performed a massive purge of spam accounts on this instance, and we've temporarily disabled signups. Many apologies for the inconvenience!

Here's the list of changes in the new #PHP 8.0 alpha
Lots of deprecated functions/methods are now removed. Many existing functions behave differently
These are basically breaking changes for anyone still using any branch older than 7.2
“Version 7 is a fresh, faster new vision for PHP. Don't let old opinions, and critics' disgust for their own code written years ago sway you from giving PHP a try.” — @syntaxseed https://dev.to/syntaxseed/the-state-of-php-today-1n2j
