PHP Core Roundup #5

Published on Aug 31, 2022 by Ayesh Karunaratne

Welcome to the fifth edition of PHP Core Roundup, a series of posts that round up updates and news on the latest improvements, discussions, bug fixes, and new features in PHP.

The PHP Foundation currently supports six part-time PHP contributors who work on maintenance and new features for PHP. Maintenance is not limited to fixing bugs, but also includes work to reduce technical debt, making life easier for everyone working on PHP. The contributors funded by the PHP Foundation collaborate with other contributors on code, documentation, and discussions.

We publish the posts on our website, and you can subscribe to a newsletter; You don’t necessarily have to be a PHP Foundation backer to follow PHP Core Roundup.

Roman Pronskiy, administration member of the PHP Foundation, also writes a monthly series about updates on the PHP Foundation, which are available under The PHP Foundation Update tag on the blog.

Elena Rubashevska from Open Collective interviewed Roman about the PHP Foundation, why and how it came to be, and his thoughts on the future of PHP, which you can read at PHP Foundation: Alive and Kicking.

PHP 8.2 Branching Out

PHP 8.2 reached its feature-freeze, and release managers have branched the PHP-8.2 branch on Aug 30th.

Now that PHP 8.2 is branched out, the master branch will be the development branch for PHP 8.3. Bug fixes and other improvements will be cherry-picked for PHP 8.2 (and older branches) as appropriate, but new features that are made to the master branch will not be merged to the PHP 8.2 branch.

Tools that build PHP based on the Git branches will also see the new branch, and the builds from the master branch will be named “PHP 8.3” for the first time.

PHP 8.2 Release Candidates

We already have PHP 8.2 beta releases, and the first PHP 8.2 Release Candidate (PHP 8.2.0-RC1) will be released on Sept 1st.

Remaining minor changes to PHP 8.2

Although the PHP 8.2 feature-freeze is passed, there are few changes that Jakub Zelenka proposed merging, and a few more by other contributors that are now merged to PHP 8.2. All of the changes are contained (in that, they don’t drastically change other parts of PHP apart from that proposed change), and do not include any syntax changes.

  • Add libxml_get_external_entity_loader() in PR #7977 by Tim Starling
  • Add openssl_cipher_key_length function in PR #9368 by Jakub Zelenka
  • Implement FR #76935: OpenSSL chacha20-poly1305 AEAD support in PR #9366 by Jakub Zelenka
  • Improved responses to different requests on static resources in built-in web server in PR #8215 by Vedran Miletić
  • Fix Issue #9186: @strict-properties can be bypassed using unserialization by Tim Düsterhus, Máté Kocsis, and Tyson Andre

Recent RFCs, Merged PRs, and Commits

Changes and improvements to PHP are discussed, reported, and voted on by the PHP Foundation Team, the PHP development team, and contributors. Bug reports are made to the PHP issue tracker, changes are discussed in mailing lists, minor code changes are proposed as pull requests, and major changes are discussed in detail and voted on as PHP RFCs. Documentation and the web site changes are also discussed and improved at their relevant Git repositories on GitHub.

Hundreds of awesome PHP contributors put their efforts into improvements to the PHP code base, documentation, and the website. Here is a summary of some of the changes made by the people behind PHP. Things marked with 💜 are done by the PHP Foundation team.

Derick 💜 has gone through all the date/time notes in the manual and integrated them where possible into said manual. There were literally hundreds of notes, resulting in the following changes: #1 #2 #3

RFC Updates and Pull-Request Updates

Following are the RFCs and major pull-requests discussed, voted, and implemented since our last update.

  • RFC Under Discussion: Asymmetric Visibility

    RFC by Ilija Tovilo 💜 and Larry Garfield propose (who also brought Enums to PHP in PHP 8.2) started a discussion on adding a new syntax to granularly declare visibility conditions (such as public, protected, or private) for class property set operations (such as assigning a value to a class property), while the get operations (reading the class properties) are not restricted.

    This RFC provides a new syntax for declaring the “set” operation visibility of an object property. Specifically:

    class Foo
        public private(set) string $bar;

    This code declares a property $bar that may be read from public scope but may only be modified from private scope. It may also be declared protected(set) to allow the property to be set from any protected scope (that is, child classes).

    There is an ongoing lengthy discussion about this RFC, and Brent Roose has written a blog post about his take on this RFC too.

  • RFC Under Discussion: json_validate

    Juan Carlos Morales, on his first RFC, proposes to add a new json_validate() function that returns if the given string of JSON is a valid JSON. PHP’s json_decode() function can emit errors or throw exceptions on strings with invalid JSON, but the proposed json_validate function will be faster and more memory efficient because it does not attempt to build the data structures in memory, but merely validate the given string.

    Juan first emailed the PHP-DEV mailing list last month, trying to gather feedback. By that time, his proposed name was is_json. You can also read and participate in the discussions on the mailing list.

  • RFC Under Discussion: StreamWrapper Support for glob()

    In this RFC Timmy Almroth proposes to add support for stream wrappers in the glob() function.

    glob() is a function in PHP to list and filter files and/or folders using a globbing pattern. The current implementation of glob() is a thin wrapper for POSIX glob(3). While all the Filesystem Functions in PHP support StreamWrappers, glob() does not. This RFC proposes to add consistently for stream wrappers in glob() function. With stream wrappers supported, glob() function will be able to use any supported and registered stream wrapper in PHP, similar to how other file system functions: \


  • RFC Implemented: Constants in Traits

    Shinji Igarashi and Stephen Reay's RFC to allow defining constants in traits is now implemented in PHP 8.2.

    Constants defined in traits use the same syntax as class constants, and work similarly to class constants when the traits are used in classes. However, direct access to trait constants (without going through the classes that use the trait), and using traits in classes that both have the same constant names is not allowed.

    All of the following constant declarations will work in PHP 8.2, but not allowed in older PHP versions:

    trait FooBar {
        const FOO = 'foo';
        private const BAR = 'bar';
        final const BAZ = 'baz';
        final protected const QUX = 'qux';

  • New Pull Request: Allow writing to readonly properties during cloning

    Nicolas Grekas has an open pull-request currently being discussed to allow setting or unsetting a property once when an object is being cloned (in the __clone() magic method).

    There is a lengthy discussion in the PR itself, and a Twitter thread started by Nicolas:

    This might lead to an RFC in the coming weeks and it might as well be the first RFC for PHP 8.3!

Merged PRs and Commits

Following are some changes that did not go through an RFC process because they are either planned, bug fixes, or progressive enhancements. There are automated unit and integration tests for each of these changes, the PHP core developers review all pull requests.
