You may consider the trigger... pulled.
8.0.0alpha1 is official, everybody!
PHP 7.1 is dead (to Wordpress), long live PHP 8.
25 years ago #PHP was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.
It's still here. Happy birthday 🎂💙
New post from the WhateverThing: Typed Properties in PHP 7.4 https://whateverthing.com/blog/2020/05/16/typed-properties-in-php-7-4//
It occurs on a review that I may have implied that any (or all?) of the other three are somehow *not* trustworthy. Allow me to clarify that they are all capable apes* of integrity. Merely meant to suggest that the reader reflect on what they personally know of each.
* Apologies also for implying that Humans are a form of Monkey. We are of course, in the family of Great Apes, or Hominidae if you prefer.
At the risk of being premature, there is a *possibility* that I'll be the veteran Release Manager for PHP 8.0 alongside one of three fine gentlemen. https://wiki.php.net/todo/php80
Not going to endorse anyone, as that'd be of questionable propriety, but if you have a vote, I encourage you to make your voice heard. A monkey could do this job, but make sure it's a monkey you can trust.
Have a listen! (Most of these podcasts sound better than this, I guess there were hardware issues that day)
