PHP Working On A "Next Generation" Branch

PHP developers have shared they are currently developing phpng, a next-generation branch of the code working towards JIT compilation.

The phpng branch doesn't yet contain a JIT compiler but it has internal API changes and other code refactoring to make the JIT desires a reality. As a result of the changes thus far, phpng is offering a "considerable performance gain" over the mainline PHP interpreter.

More information on the next-generation PHP work can be found via this news post.
