PHP 7 to Be Even Faster Than Expected
With the latest experiments with the Feedback Directed Optimization patch, it is possible that PHP 7 will be event 10% faster than the implementation with other optimizations already implemented for PHP 7.0.
That was one the topics commented by Manuel Lemos and Arturs Sosins in the episode 60 of the Lately in PHP podcast.
They also commented on proposals for future PHP versions like having a numeric type hint, options for preloaded scripts, making Libsodium a core extension for applications that need cryptography, the updated roadmap for PHP 7.0.0 and creating a new branch for PHP 7.1 development.
They also talked about the latest PHP tutorial articles and book reviews published lately on the site.
