PHP 7.2 is due in November. What’s new?

PHP 7.2 is just around the corner. In new blogpost Martin Hujer walks us through the changes.

PHP 7.2 is planned to be released on 30th November 2017 (see the timetable). And it comes with two new security features in the core, several smaller improvements and some language legacy clean-ups. In the article, I will describe what the improvements and changes are. I read the RFCs, discussions on internals and PRs on Github, so you don’t have to.
