Just received this from php|architect.
Honored and humbled. ❤️🐘

I wonder what exactly compels people to send emails like this to anyone.

Just a quick rough-up of a proposal idea by @beausimensen@twitter.com for static return type hints in PHP.

Description:

Implementation:

There's probably a little extra work to be done to ensure covariance rules are respected, but this is a place to start discussion.

That's it. As of today, the PHP 7.2 branch is no longer getting low-priority "bugfix" updates. Security-only from here on out.

* The final bugfix release is still 16 days away, but it's in RC lock as of today and only urgent security patches will be applied between now and GA.

TIL the Playstation is about the same age as PHP and I kind of want to compile PHP to run in interactive mode on the PS1 now.

Oh wait. Can't. Because freedom stifling DRM is still choking a dead game platform.

PHP 7.4.0 Relased!!!
Typed Properties, Short Lambdas, Preloading, ... IT'S ALL HERE!!!
FOR REAL REAL, NOT FOR PLAY PLAY!!!

@ramsey I've noticed that sometimes when returning to my phpc.social mastodon window (browser, Chrome/OSX) I see a series of "Throttled" messages scrolling off the lower left corner. I don't see that on other masto instances. Do you know what that's about? (Also, am I wrong in thinking you run this one?)

Realized in a round about way that #Okuna was called #OpenBook last year.

'Hmm, I wonder why?"

2 seconds of research later...

OH FOR FUCK SAKES.

Flights booked for @sunshinephp! Looking forward to another solid conference of PHP goodness!

Just heard that php[tek] 2020 is going to be in Nashville. Looking forward to seeing the Ewok in his native environment.

New PHP releases announced:

7.3.12: news-web.php.net/php.internals
7.2.25: news-web.php.net/php.internals

No 7.1 release as there are no security fixes in this batch. Just humble bugfixes.

Just going over the supported versions list and realizing that, very briefly, we'll be at five at once again. Ya know, for three days. Still, yikes.

In Twitter Jail for saying that if you fuck with Marge, I'll fuck with you. Which... fair cop, that's technically a threat of violence, so in the meanwhile, back to Mastodon.

How y'all doin'?
