PHP 8 support

By Christophe Dujarric, on Nov 24, 2020

We’re thrilled to announce the support of PHP 8!

You can now get the latest version of the Blackfire probe and try it out!

Some notes:

  • Blackfire for PHP 8, for now, has a dependency on curl. We’re working on removing this dependency, in a future version of the Blackfire probe.
  • Blackfire does not support the JIT option of PHP 8. Blackfire may actually crash if you enable this feature, therefore we do not recommend it. We’re working on compatibility when JIT is activated.

Happy PHP 8 profiling!
