+?? ??? 201?, PHP 5.5.0
- General improvements:
- . Added multibyte support by default. Previously php had to be compiled
- with --enable-zend-multibyte. Now it can be enabled or disabled through
- zend.multibyte directive in php.ini (Dmitry)
- . Removed compile time dependency from ext/mbstring (Dmitry)
- . Added scalar typehints to the parser and the reflection API. (Ilia, Derick)
- . Added support for Traits. (Stefan)
- . Added closure $this support back. (Stas)
- . Added array dereferencing support. (Felipe)
- . Added support for object references in recursive serialize() calls.
- FR #36424. (Mike)
- . Added http_response_code() function. FR #52555. (Paul Dragoonis, Kalle)
- . Added header_register_callback() which is invoked immediately
- prior to the sending of headers and after default headers have
- been added. (Scott)
- . Added DTrace support. (David Soria Parra)
- . Improved output layer, see README.NEW-OUTPUT-API for internals. (Mike)
- . Improved unserialize() performance.
- (galaxy dot mipt at gmail dot com, Kalle)
- . Improved unix build system to allow building multiple PHP binary SAPIs and
- one SAPI module the same time. FR #53271, FR #52410. (Jani)
- . Added optional argument to debug_backtrace() and debug_print_backtrace()
- to limit the amount of stack frames returned. (Sebastian, Patrick)
-
-- Improved Zend Engine memory usage: (Dmitry)
- . Replaced zend_function.pass_rest_by_reference by
- ZEND_ACC_PASS_REST_BY_REFERENCE in zend_function.fn_flags.
- . Replaced zend_function.return_reference by ZEND_ACC_RETURN_REFERENCE
- in zend_function.fn_flags.
- . Removed zend_arg_info.required_num_args as it was only needed for internal
- functions. Now the first arg_info for internal functions (which has special
- meaning) is represented by zend_internal_function_info structure.
- . Moved zend_op_array.size, size_var, size_literal, current_brk_cont,
- backpatch_count into CG(context) as they are used only during compilation.
- . Moved zend_op_array.start_op into EG(start_op) as it's used only for
- 'interactive' execution of single top-level op-array.
- . Replaced zend_op_array.done_pass_two by ZEND_ACC_DONE_PASS_TWO in
- zend_op_array.fn_flags.
- . op_array.vars array is trimmed (reallocated) during pass_two.
- . Replaced zend_class_entry.constants_updated by ZEND_ACC_CONSTANTS_UPDATED
- in zend_class_entry.ce_flags.
- . Reduced the size of zend_class_entry by sharing the same memory space
- by different information for internal and user classes.
- See zend_class_entry.info union.
- . Reduced size of temp_variable.
-
-- Changed the structure of op_array.opcodes. The constant values are moved from
- opcode operands into a separate literal table. (Dmitry)
-
-- Improved Zend Engine, performance tweaks and optimizations: (Dmitry)
- . Inlined most probable code-paths for arithmetic operations directly into
- executor
- . Eliminated unnecessary iterations during request startup/shutdown.
- . Changed $GLOBALS into a JIT autoglobal, so it's initialized only if used.
- (this may affect opcode caches!)
- . Improved performance of @ (silence) operator.
- . Simplified string offset reading. $str[1][0] is now a legal construct.
- . Added caches to eliminate repeatable run-time bindings of functions,
- classes, constants, methods and properties.
- . Added concept of interned strings. All strings constants known at compile
- time are allocated in a single copy and never changed.
- . Added an optimization which saves memory and emalloc/efree calls for empty
- HashTables. (Stas, Dmitry)
- . ZEND_RECV now always has IS_CV as its result.
- . ZEND_CATCH now has to be used only with constant class names.
- . ZEND_FETCH_DIM_? may fetch array and dimension operands in different order.
- . Simplified ZEND_FETCH_*_R operations. They can't be used with the
- EXT_TYPE_UNUSED flag any more. This is a very rare and useless case.
- ZEND_FREE might be required after them instead.
- . Split ZEND_RETURN into two new instructions ZEND_RETURN and
- ZEND_RETURN_BY_REF.
- . Optimized access to global constants using values with pre-calculated
- hash_values from the literals table.
- . Optimized access to static properties using executor specialization.
- A constant class name may be used as a direct operand of ZEND_FETCH_*
- instruction without previous ZEND_FETCH_CLASS.
- . zend_stack and zend_ptr_stack allocation is delayed until actual usage.
-
-- Improved CLI SAPI: (Johannes)
- . Added command line option --rz <name> which shows information of the
- named Zend extension.
- . Interactive readline shell improvements:
- . Added "cli.pager" php.ini setting to set a pager for output.
- . Added "cli.prompt" php.ini setting to configure the shell prompt.
- . Added shortcut #inisetting=value to change ini settings at run-time.
- . Changed shell not to terminate on fatal errors.
- . Interactive shell works with shared readline extension. FR #53878.
-
-- Improved FastCGI SAPI: (Dmitry)
- . Added apache compatible functions: apache_child_terminate(),
- getallheaders(), apache_request_headers() and apache_response_headers()
- . Improved performance of FastCGI request parsing.
-
-- Improved core functions:
- . number_format() no longer truncates multibyte decimal points and thousand
- separators to the first byte. FR #53457. (Adam)
-
-- Improved CURL extension:
- . Added support for CURLOPT_MAX_RECV_SPEED_LARGE and
- CURLOPT_MAX_SEND_SPEED_LARGE. FR #51815. (Pierrick)
-
-- Improved Date extension:
- . Added the + modifier to parseFromFormat to allow trailing text in the
- string to parse without throwing an error. (Stas, Derick)
-
-- Improved DBA extension:
- . Added Tokyo Cabinet abstract DB support. (Michael Maclean)
- . Added Berkeley DB 5 support. (Johannes, Chris Jones)

- FR #53407. (Adam)
-
-- Improved HASH extension:
