    PHP 8 Released

    PHP 8 has been released on the 26th November 2020, It contains many new features and optimizations including named arguments, union types, attributes, constructor property promotion, match expression, nullsafe operator, JIT, and improvements in the type system, error handling, and consistency.
    PHP 8.0 comes with numerous improvements and new features such as:
    Union Types Named Arguments Match Expressions Attributes Constructor Property Promotion Nullsafe Operator Weak Maps Just In Time Compilation And much much more...  
    New Named arguments:
    PHP 7
    htmlspecialchars($string, ENT_COMPAT | ENT_HTML401, 'UTF-8', false); Now with PHP 8
    htmlspecialchars($string, double_encode: false); Specify only required parameters, skipping optional ones. Arguments are order-independent and self-documented. New Attributes:
    PHP 7
    class PostsController { /** * @Route("/api/posts/{id}", methods={"GET"}) */ public function get($id) { /* ... */ } } Now with PHP 8
    class PostsController { #[Route("/api/posts/{id}", methods: ["GET"])] public function get($id) { /* ... */ } } Instead of PHPDoc annotations, you can now use structured metadata with PHP's native syntax.  
    Just to list a couple of the new features:
    take a look at the official PHP 8 Release to see more changes
    Just-In-Time compilation:
    PHP 8 introduces two JIT compilation engines. Tracing JIT, the most promising of the two, shows about 3 times better performance on synthetic benchmarks and 1.5–2 times improvement on some specific long-running applications. Typical application performance is on par with PHP 7.4.
    PHP 8 is going to be better on performance and syntax along with improved type safety. here at storm developers are exited to be launching new projects under PHP 8 in the future and looking forward to our software performance improvements.
    let us know your thoughts on PHP 8 we are keen to hear what everyone else things about this new release.

    Backlinks Manager 0.5.9

    We have update our backlinks manager to version 0.5.9 with work being done on the mobile optimization so that when viewing on smaller devices you will see a more tableless design so data does not flow over the screen or needing to scroll left or right.
    We are aware since moving to our new website that the system version updates notice might be showing an error or might be saying that you need to update, we are working hard to get 0.6.0 working with our all new Software UA system that we are building, this will be launched in due course and aim to have this sorted soon as possible.
    If you encounter any further issues than we already know about please feel free to send us a GitHub issue or you are more than welcome to contact us so we can out a resolution to any issues the software is having.

      Making my first blog post, though i would mention that working hard with the storm developers website ensuring that all features and settings are well implemented so that we can run smoothly with our services and community features.

      There maybe some bumps in the road as we launch but with your support and ideas we will make storm developers a wonderful place to be.

      some of the areas i have put into play is the forums i have added some starting categories that would help with many general topics from coding languages in back-end developments to UI front-end developments, You are able to talk about specific languages such as PHP, Python, C, Java and more, get support where you need if you have a few issues with some specific code or what some help solving an error you are receiving.

      We are planning the store services and our software releases, so far i have added our backlinks manager system that is currently in beta at the moment as we work on the core features and fixing minor bugs. Coming in the future and work in progress is our Software UA system (Software Updates and Announcements Manager). We do not have a release date set as of yet for this but we hope that we can get a working beta out in 2021 (this is not set in stone yet). With the Software UA when released you will be able to edit software communications and announcements via api urls to announce news, current version, development version and notify the software user there is an update using json requests and tracking so that your software users keep update with your latest software versions.


      2021 is going to be a great year and will be a year that Storm Developers is going hopefully grow with the work we as a community put into making our software and community succeed.

      for now stay tuned as we are building the core Storm Developers website and services. if you see any issues or faults please contact us so that we can get these issues fixed as promptly as possible.


      I will be posting as often as i can in my blog about updates and things that will be happening in the future both with Storm Developers and our software also including our achievements and community growth.


      Looking forward the future.
