FREE SOFTWARE --
The first alpha release was made available on Thursday for the upcoming PHP 7.1.

PHP 7.1 is baking many features including the void return type, nullable types, generalized support of negative string offsets, class constant visibility modifiers, multi-catch, and more.

Developers are planning two alphas, three betas, and seven release candidates for PHP 7.1. The plan is to officially release PHP 7.1.0 in November. You can find out more about PHP 7.1 Alpha 1 via the PHP.net announcement. Two weeks back I did some early PHP 7.1-dev testing.
