A few days ago the Facebook developers working on the HipHop Virtual Machine -- that serves as a faster implementation of PHP and it also serves as the basis of their Hack language -- released HHVM 3.3.0.

HHVM is the project's first long-term support release that they've agreed to keep maintained until the middle of August 2015. Among the features of HHVM 3.3 are supporting async lambda functions in Hack, a greater implementation of XDebug, an implementation of APC Iterator, INI settings are now more consistently and widely supported, GMP extension support, support for loading dynamic extensions via INI files, improved reflection compatible, type-checker support for interface requirements, support for PHP 5.6 style argument unpacking, performance and memory usage improvements, HNI improvements, and an hhvm-dev package has been introduced. There's also two security fixes to HHVM 3.3.

Those wishing to learn more about HHVM 3.3 can find all of the release details via the HHVM blog.
