PHP developers have today released PHP 7.0 RC5 as the second to the last release candidate for the major PHP 7.0 release due out next month.

If you are not already familiar with this next release, see our PHP 7.0 articles already on the matter. There's some new language features and consistent 64-bit support, but most notable about PHP7 is the greatly enhanced performance. PHP 7.0 is crazy fast compared to PHP 5.

With today's PHP 7.0 RC5 release, there's been just more bug-fixes. The developers next plan to release PHP 7.0 RC6 on 29 October and to then do the much-anticipated official release on 12 November.
