Drupal 8 and PHP 7

Submitted by dryer on Thu, 11/12/2015 - 19:05

Drupal 8 is launching soon and so is PHP 7. It's worth noting that Drupal 8 does not officially support PHP 7 at launch date, so even if you were craving for the performance boost - it's better to wait until everything in Drupal 8 is tested and proved to be PHP 7 compatible.

For PHP 7 support in Drupal 7, the plan is to backport the compatibility at a later date, as the ticket is labeled as "needs backport to D7".
