PHP 8 released

PHP 8 has been released! Will it compete well against many other new and old programming languages?! We’ll see. Will you be one of those early adopters? As the languages continue influencing each other and becoming more and more similar; as always, the scary part for me is the number of bugs like in any other software application! But many fanatics will ignore. Here is what PHP Group say about this new version:

PHP 8.0 is a major update of the PHP language. It contains many new features and optimizations including named arguments, union types, attributes, constructor property promotion, match expression, nullsafe operator, JIT, and improvements in the type system, error handling, and consistency.
