With the final release of PHP 7.2 coming on the horizon the Exakat blog wants to be sure you and your code are prepared for some of the changes. In this new post they share things to change and improvements to expect in this latest version of the PHP language.
PHP 7.2 is around the corner, and shall be out soon, thanks to the hard work of @RemiCollet), Sara Golemon (@saramg) and countless others that run tests and submit bug reports. PHP 7.2 is already RC6, and the documentation has even been updated : it is high time to get ready for PHP 7.2.
We have been hard at work, at @Exakat, to prepare the migration analysis. This is our take on this upcoming task.
He’s broken the changes coming down into a few categories based on the actions required and what you can do to prepare: Know, Lint, Static (Analysis), Unit testing and Logging. A chart is then included showing each of the changes, which category they fall into and links to more information about them and what has been updated (or added).
