PROGRAMMING --
Facebook developers have released version 3.5.0 of HHVM as a faster alternative to the reference PHP implementation.

HHVM 3.5.0 was released today and delivers better error handling for the PDO extension, more HNI conversions, allows calling closures inline, and supports stream_await for async stream blocking. Full details on the HHVM 3.5.0 release can be found via the HHVM.com blog.

My most recent testing of PHP 5 vs. PHP 7 vs. HHVM benchmarks in development form have shown Facebook's HipHop Virtual Machine still dominating by a significant lead.
