PHP levels up! The world’s favorite back-end programming language now gets a new version packed with new features and significant upgrades.
PHP is touted as the de facto language for server-side scripting in app development and even websites. The popularity of the language has also made it extremely useful as a general-purpose programming language.
The latest version gets a huge boost in terms of performance, speed, new scalar type declarations and even a new operator. The performance and speed boost comes from the new turbocharged Zend Engine 3, which also allows PHP7 to consume half as much as memory as PHP5 and support more component users at the same time.
In addition the new engine, other changes to PHP7 include replacing fatal- or recoverable-level legacy PHP error mechanisms with object-oriented exceptions, inclusion of left-hand-side expressions, unmaintained or deprecated server application programming interfaces (SAPIs) were removed, list() operator now includes support for strings, new language features such as return type declarations for functions, and support for the scalar types in return type and parameter declarations.
