It's only 17 days till our last post for this year. We're still looking for contributors for this year's edition, so if you have something to share, please do get in touch. 24daysindecember.net/2020/10/3

For Cyber Monday, we’re offering PHP 8.0 for free! Go download it today! 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! php.net/eol.php

@krinkle @pollita I don’t think this is exactly what you’re looking for, but there is github.com/phpbench/phpbench and phpbench.com (two separate projects), which might help point you in the right direction.

Such is the power of Open Source that when php.net/releases/8.0/ launched in four languages (en, pt_BR, de, and ru), someone stepped up IMMEDIATELY to provide a French translation: php.net/releases/8.0/fr.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 might have published the @VonageDev PHP SDK v2.7.0 today with PHP 8 support.

Who am I kidding, I totally did.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

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.

Very special thank you to @pollita and @carusogabriel, release managers, and to all the contributors who put in countless hours to make PHP 8 possible! 🥳🎉🎊🍾

Getting the Thanksgiving meal prepped for PHP 8.0.0 release day.

If you’re on Board Game Arena, I’ve set up a PHP Community group. Feel free to join the group to find PHPers who like board games! en.boardgamearena.com/group?id

We’ve re-opened sign-ups, but they must be approved, so be patient if you’re waiting on approval. This is how we cut down on spam accounts.

I’ve set up phpc.chat as a community chat resource; it’s powered by open source Rocket.Chat. I don’t want it to take the place of other community spaces, but you’re welcome to use it for anything related to the PHP programming language, if your project needs a home.
