Oliver Davies recently shared insights on PHP attributes making their way into Drupal, especially since the introduction of Drupal 10.2. PHP attributes, a new feature in PHP 8, are being embraced as an alternative to annotations for defining plugins like blocks and queues within the framework. While the initial phase has focused on converting core plugins, discussions are underway regarding the potential support for both attributes and annotations in Drupal 11. This move underscores Drupal's commitment to evolving with the latest features from PHP and the Symfony framework, promising enhanced functionality and flexibility for developers like Davies in future projects.
