The PHP development team announces the immediate availability of PHP 7.0.1. Several bugs have been fixed. All PHP 7.0 users are encouraged to upgrade to this version.
This 11th annual conference that is focused on community is this year moving to a bigger venue in Saint Louis so that we can expand and give our attendees some elbow room! We have a number of other updates that will be announced in the coming months as well.
But right now, we want to hear from you! We want to hear what talk ideas you have. Without our speakers, there would be no conference. We offer a very comprehensive speakers package, including:
- Airfare coverage (up to $400 domestic, $1000 international)
- Hotel Room (1 night + 1 per accepted talk)
- Free ticket to the conference, including Tutorial Day
Don't hesitate! Our Call for Speakers closes on January 16th, 2016. So you only have a few weeks to get those submissions in. We look forward to hearing from you!
The PHP development team announces the immediate availability of PHP 7.0.0. This release marks the start of the new major PHP 7 series.
PHP 7.0.0 comes with a new version of the Zend Engine, numerous improvements and new features such as
- Improved performance: PHP 7 is up to twice as fast as PHP 5.6
- Significantly reduced memory usage
- Abstract Syntax Tree
- Consistent 64-bit support
- Improved Exception hierarchy
- Many fatal errors converted to Exceptions
- Secure random number generator
- Removed old and unsupported SAPIs and extensions
- The null coalescing operator (??)
- Return and Scalar Type Declarations
- Anonymous Classes
- Zero cost asserts
The migration guide is available in the PHP Manual. Please consult it for the detailed list of new features and backward incompatible changes.
The inconvenience of the release lateness in several time zones is caused by the need to ensure the compatibility with the latest OpenSSL 1.0.2e release. Thanks for the patience!
It is not just a next major PHP version being released today. The release being introduced is an outcome of the almost two years development journey. It is a very special accomplishment of the core team. And, it is a result of incredible efforts of many active community members. Indeed, it is not just a final release being brought out today, it is the rise of a new PHP generation with an enormous potential.
Congratulations everyone to this spectacular day for the PHP world!
Grateful thanks to all the contributors and supporters!
It’s been a long time coming … Back in 2004 php[architect] ran a conference-cruise, and ever since we’ve heard people asking for us to repeat the event. We figured that 12 years was long enough of a wait. Therefore we’d like to announce php[cruise] happening in 2016! This 7 day long conference-cruise will be a unique event for the PHP community. Completely immersive and giving you, the attendee, a hands-on experience not to be matched!
You can learn more about the conference, the cruise, how the pricing is structured, and what talks we will be having by exploring our website. And please if you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact us.
Our Early Bird Sale runs just until December 31st, 2015 - So buy tickets soon to save yourself a spot at this limited space event.
