      I hope that php devs will extend support for 5.6. I'm not using it for any project at this moment. but some people sticked with old version and they will loose support in December. (of course you can argue that RHEL will support their php 5.4 for next few years - and you are right, but some people wants 5.6) there are no large bc breaks between 5.6 and 7.x, but still I think that latest big version should be LTS. for example python devs provides 12 years of support for python 2.x. of course there was some bc breaks between python 2.x and 3.x that justified such long extended support, but IMO php devs should learn fro python devs how to provide support for legacy versions.

            Awesome! I'm tempted to write a Wayland compositor with the new FFI, just for lulz.

              This is actually somewhat exciting, I wonder if this breathes new life into PHP as a project. It certainly makes running LAMP applications more exciting again.
