Facebook releases HipHop (HHVM) 3.0, adds mysqli and support for Hack language
Lots of movement in the PHP world these days! After releasing Hack (a dramatically improved fork of the entire PHP language) a few days ago, Facebook’s engineering team has shipped HipHop (HHVM) 3.0 today. Beside lots of improvements, the most interesting new features are the native integration of the Hack language and reimplemented support for mysqli. There are easy-to-install packages for all major linux distributions available. So if you love cutting-edge PHP, test this out!
