We are very pleased to announce that PHP 7.2 is now available for all Windows web hosting packages and plans. PHP 7.2 will be the first programming language to add modern cryptography to its standard library!
As well as other proposed ideas which you can review here https://wiki.php.net/rfc.
While we do not know all changes that are planned for PHP 7.2, some of the deprecated features that we’ve seen in the RFC are discussed here https://laravel-news.com/php-7-2-deprecations. Our technical team will be keeping an eye on PHP 7.2 and bring news as more changes come to light.
We are adopting this new release so that users who rely on PHP for their application development can test their application to aid in future-proofing their code or just testing out new language features and syntax candy. Since this is a beta release, support for 3rd party extensions such as Ioncube, Zend Guard and Phalcon are not available. As always, this is a non-production version of PHP, so please take care when using this build of PHP with any websites!
We hope everyone enjoys the new release! If you have any questions, concerns or comments, please let us know.
Thank you for choosing ASPnix as your web hosting provider!
