========================================
1. Backward Incompatible Changes
========================================
- Core
. Added null coalesce operator (??).
(RFC: https://wiki.php.net/rfc/isset_ternary)
. list() now always supports ArrayAccess and never supports strings.
Previously both were accepted in some situations and not in others.
(RFC: https://wiki.php.net/rfc/fix_list_behavior_inconsistency)
. Bitwise shifts by negative numbers of bits are disallowed (throws E_WARNING
and gives FALSE, like a division by zero).
. Left bitwise shifts by a number of bits beyond the bit width of an integer
will always result in 0, even on CPUs which wrap around.
. Right bitwise shifts by a number of bits beyond the bit width of an integer
will always result in 0 or -1 (depending on sign), even on CPUs which wrap
around.
. Removed ASP (<%) and script (<script language=php>) tags.
(RFC: https://wiki.php.net/rfc/remove_alternative_php_tags)
- DBA
. dba_delete() now returns false if the key was not found for the inifile
handler, too.
- GMP
. Requires libgmp version 4.2 or newer now.
. gmp_setbit() and gmp_clrbit() now return FALSE for negative indices, making
them consistent with other GMP functions.
========================================
2. New Features
========================================
- Core
. Support for strings with length >= 2^31 bytes in 64 bit builds
. Closure::call() method added
- Standard
. intdiv() function for integer division added.
========================================
3. Changes in SAPI modules
========================================
- FPM
. Fixed bug #65933 (Cannot specify config lines longer than 1024 bytes).
========================================
4. Deprecated Functionality
========================================
========================================
5. Changed Functions
========================================
- parse_ini_file():
- parse_ini_string():
Added scanner mode INI_SCANNER_TYPED to yield typed .ini values.
========================================
6. New Functions
========================================
========================================
7. New Classes and Interfaces
========================================
========================================
8. Removed Extensions
========================================
========================================
9. Other Changes to Extensions
========================================
========================================
10. New Global Constants
========================================
- Core
. PHP_INT_MIN added.
========================================
11. Changes to INI File Handling
========================================
- Core
. Removed asp_tags ini directive. Trying to enable it will result in a fatal
error.
========================================
12. Windows Support
========================================
- Core
. Support for native 64 bit integers in 64 bit builds
. Support for large files in 64 bit builds
========================================
13. Other Changes
========================================
- Core
. Instead of being undefined and platform-dependant, NaN and Infinity will
always be zero when casted to integer.
. Calling a method on a non-object no longer raises a fatal error; see
also: https://wiki.php.net/rfc/catchable-call-to-member-of-non-object
- Standard
. call_user_method() and call_user_method_array() no longer exists.
