PHPStan 1.0 was released today as the first stable release for this leading open-source PHP static analysis tool.

After being in development more than a half-decade, PHPStan developers felt finally comfortable declaring a 1.0 stable release. Besides feeling confident to mark it v1.0, PHPStan 1.0 does deliver on a new level 9 mode, precise try-catch-finally analysis, generic array function stubs, detecting unused private properties / methods / constants, and much more.

If you are a PHP developer, I highly recommend trying out PHPStan for static analysis if you have never tried so or not done so recently. I've been following (and using) PHPStan for years and it's quite great.
