Coming soon is the HHVM 3.6 release for making PHP even faster and Facebook's Hack derivative even better, but further out into 2015 are even more exciting improvements.

Josh Watzman at Facebook wrote about changes for the upcoming release of HHVM 3.6 for Hack and PHP along with other HHVM roadmap items for 2015. He shared these details in a new blog post today on the HHVM site.

Features coming up for HHVM 3.6 is MySQL support for async functions in Hack, async support for Memcache, restructuring of the FastCGI server, native property handers, greater PHP code flexibility, crash and memory leak fixes, and much more. HHVM 3.6 is expected for release around the end of February or early March.

Items further out beyond HHVM 3.6 include integration of LLVM for greater speed optimizations, continued experiements on 64-bit ARM (AArch64), better garbage collection for HHVM, memory usage improvements, a 100% Hack XHP 2.0 library, and many other changes.
