Getting Ready for PHP 7.2

PHP 7.2 is planned to be released on 30th November 2017. And it comes with two new security features in the core, several smaller improvements and some language legacy clean-ups. In the article, I will describe what the improvements and changes are. I read the RFCs, discussions on internals and PRs on Github, so you don’t have to.

The two security-related features are Argon2 Password Hashing and the integration of Libsodium as a core extension.

PHP 7.2 is due in November. What’s new? →

(*) Using the “old” version of the extension, meaning you’ll have to rename some functions and constants to get it working.
