What’s new in PHP 8

PHP 8, released on November 26, 2020, marks a significant milestone in the evolution of the PHP programming language. This new major version introduces a plethora of exciting features and performance enhancements, along with some breaking changes that developers need to be aware of.

If you’re considering upgrading to PHP 8, it’s important to note that due to these breaking changes, adjustments to your existing code may be necessary. However, if you’ve been staying up-to-date with recent PHP 7 releases, transitioning to PHP 8 should be relatively straightforward, as many breaking changes were deprecated in earlier versions.

In addition to addressing breaking changes, PHP 8 introduces several noteworthy features, including the highly anticipated JIT (Just-In-Time) compiler, union types, attributes, and more. These features offer developers powerful tools to enhance the performance and capabilities of their PHP applications.
