PHP showing its maturity in release 7.4

PHP version 7.4 showing its maturity

From the LWN article

Often derided as a great way to write inadequate (and insecure) code, PHP is hard to ignore completely when it is used in nearly eight out of ten websites. With PHP 7.4.5 released in April, it’s worthwhile to take a look at modern PHP, how it has evolved to address the criticisms of the past, and what lies ahead in its future. This article covers the following topics:

The evolution of OOP in PHP
Proper dependency management and third-party extensions
PHP gets proper FFI
Making security less obscure
Performance increases
The future of PHP
