The Facebook developers working on the HHVM interpreter for PHP/Hack have announced the major v3.26 update.

HHVM 3.26 is a major release in that it now uses the HackC compiler front-end by default. HackC offers a full-fidelity parser and bytecode emitter for both Hack and PHP languages. HHVM developers are planning to drop their legacy front-end to HHVM in their next release (v3.27).

HHVM 3.26 is also significant in that it re-licences the Hack code to the MIT license and has a number of other feature additions, including a new dynamic type for the Hack language's type system.

More details on HHVM 3.26 via this morning's release announcement at HHVM.com.
