DECLARATIONS & SCALAR TYPE HINTS

PHP 7 allows developers to declare what kind of return type a function is expected to have - similar to argument Type Hints.

In addition, argument type hints and the new return-type declarations now support new scalar types, allowing developers to denote that they're expecting strings, floats, ints or bools to be passed or returned.

PHP 7 IS 2X FASTER

Since PHPNG was open sourced and later merged into PHP 7, its performance more than doubled in many cases, and we're continuing to improve it all the time.

To put things in perspective – when PHPNG was published, the WordPress homepage required approx. 9.4 billion CPU instructions to execute.  As of now – it requires only 2.6 billion – that's 72% less!
