Man.... I am so conflicted about user-space operator overloading vote....

Aaaaaand PHP surprising me after 25 years.

Switch statements will let you use `case 42:` or `case 42;` (note colon vs semi-colon) interchangably.

Why? Because it's PHP.
*shrug*

Whelp. It's official. php[tek]2020 has been cancelled. My year is shaping up to be almost entirely travel free (not counting all that cross-country driving in January).

Me: Installing PHP on a raspberry Pi to do some light web scripting with.

Ubuntu: We have 7.2 available as a pre-built package.

Me (the actual release manager for the 7.2 branch): Eeewww, gross. That's ancient. I'll compile it myself k'thx.

Narrator: She didn't even need later versions.

Evidently @calevans has released the interview with @derickr and I at .

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

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.
