PHP 8.2 Released on December 08

Aminor version of PHP 8.x, version 8.2.0 got released on December 08, 2022. This release marks the latest minor release of the PHP language.

PHP, short form for Hypertext Preprocessor, earlier abbreviated as Personal Home Page, is a popular general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited to web development. Fast, flexible and pragmatic, PHP powers everything from your blog to the most popular websites in the world. Popular CMSs including Drupal, Wordpress, Joomla, Magento etc and frameworks such as Laravel, Symfony, CodeIgniter, and many other are written in PHP. 

PHP 8.2 comes with numerous improvements and new features such as:

Readonly classes
Disjunctive Normal Form (DNF) Types
New stand-alone types: null, false, and true
New "Random" extension
Constants in traits
Deprecate dynamic properties
And much much more...

This new minor version brings with it a number of new features and a few incompatibilities that should be tested before switching PHP versions in production environments.

PHP 8.2 is a key milestone in PHP's journey in modernizing the PHP language. In addition to the exciting new features and improvements, PHP 8.2 streamlines the language by deprecating support for dynamic class properties, warnings when it encounters certain non-optimal INI configuration values, and fixing some of the legacy PHP behaviour that affects how PHP sorts arrays and certain types of string transform/encode operations.

The migration guide is available in the PHP Manual. Please consult it for the detailed list of new features and backward incompatible changes.
