PHP 8.1 is Here Studded with Highly Requested Features

PHP 8.1 has been officially released and brings numerous innovations, such as enumerations, fibers and performance improvements.

PHP is a server side scripting language that is used to develop web applications. According to W3Techs’ data, PHP is used by 78.2% of all websites with a known server-side programming language. In other words, almost 8 out of every 10 websites that you visit on the Internet are using PHP in some way.

The language continues to evolve, by releasing their newest PHP 8.1 update, just a couple of days after the formation of a PHP Foundation was announced. This new version, released November 25, 2021, contains many new features, including enums, readonly properties, first-class callable syntax, fibers, intersection types, performance improvements and more.
