Zend Updates Tools for PHP 7
During its ZendCon 2015 event, Zend Technologies announced that it was releasing a set of development tools and services to support PHP 7. The new offerings include an update to Zend Server, migration assistance features in Zend Studio, and Professional Services that help developers use PHP 7.
"The entire PHP ecosystem is evolving so quickly, and the differences between PHP 5.6 and 7.0 are simply staggering," said Andi Gutmans, co-founder of Zend. "Zend engineers have achieved performance gains ranging from 25 percent to 70 percent on real-world apps — and all from simply upgrading PHP, without having to change a single line of code."
