Support PHP 8.0?


Recommended Posts

PHP 8 is not faster than PHP 7.4 for the vast majority of web applications. There are many great new features and language improvements, but speed improvements for web apps was not the focus of PHP 8. There will be limited reasons for IPS to officially support PHP 8 until it's baked a few versions, minimum.

We have been testing PHP 8 compatibility locally and it will be included in a future release, however I can't say exactly when that will be. I can say that certain third party libraries we use will also need updates before we can fully support PHP 8.

Will JIT be used?

JIT isn't something the application explicitly uses - it's a feature of the language that can be enabled or disabled in php.ini. It will be used if you enable it in your PHP configuration, in other words. Whether it will improve performance or not remains to be seen.

I think it's still too early...

What benkchmark did you use? I can see at least x2 speed improvment on the latest version.

Thank you for your answer, hopefully it will be soon 😉

Latest version of IPS? I haven’t personally benchmarked, but I’m going off what most the trusted PHP experts (and the PHP development team) have said about 8. Expect performance gains from JIT in certain specific calculation tasks and long running php apps. Most web apps (which aren’t either of those things) aren’t not expected to specifically benefit from the initial release of 8. If IPS is seeing a x2 performance gain, I would be shocked and that goes against everything written about the purpose and expectations for 8, but would obviously be a welcome surprise.
