Nikola Poša did some light research on what features PHP developers are craving for to be added in PHP 8. Seems like I'm not the only one that wants arrow functions and generics.

It's been over two months since I started a research on Twitter about the things that developers would like to be added or improved in the next major PHP release. It had a surprisingly long reach, inspiring developers, prominent experts, community representatives to express their opinion through more than a hundred responses.
