Sherif Ramadan:
Test Drive PHP 5.5 A Sneak Peek
October 22, 2012 @ 12:09:02

Sherif Ramadan has a new post that gets into some good detail about what you can expect in the upcoming PHP 5.5 release with loads of new features.

There's been some talk about PHP 5.5.0 over the past couple of months even though it is barely on the horizon. The reason for this is that the PHP project has seen some increased levels of activity over the last two years since the dawn of PHP 5.4 and now in to the early twilight phase of PHP 5.5.0-dev. For those of you that haven't been following the internals mailing list I'm about to give you a quick test-drive and sneak-peak at PHP 5.5 using the latest 5.5.0-dev branch (which is still TBD).

Obviously, since the actual release of this version has yet to be determined, some of this may change over time. He gets into some of the major advancements and features that will be included like:

  • the "finally" keyword
  • list() support in foreach()
  • the Password Hashing API
  • generators
  • a new property accessor syntax
  • scalar type hints

Code samples are provided in some places to help make a bit more sense out of the example.
