Description (last modified by Jeff McKenna)

  • PHP 8.0 was released on 2020-11-26
  • migration guide includes some deprecated/incompatibilities: https://www.php.net/manual/en/migration80.php
  • requires Visual Studio 2019 (meaning the entire buildkit of 200+ libraries will have to be created and compiled)

This upgrade will be a *major* upgrade, likely part of other significant MS4W effort (PROJ 7 #198 etc).

For me, this is the most important point in the new MS4W 5.0. PHP version 7.4 is already EOL.

PHP 8.2.10 was released yesterday and will be included in MS4W 5.0-final
