General messages

Dear developers,

Two very interesting events last week:

First, PHP 8.1 was released on the 25th of November 2021. This release marks the latest minor release of the PHP language. Take a look at the PHP 8.1 announcement on for more information.

Second, multiple companies, including the PrestaShop company, joined forces to form a PHP Foundation! The PHP Foundation will be a non-profit organization whose mission is to ensure the long life and prosperity of the PHP language.

Small reminder, the next session of public demonstration from the maintainers team will happen will be streamed live on Wednesday, December 1, 2021, at 4 pm CEST. See you then!
