The first release candidate of PHP 8 has been released last week.

Any eta for the PHP 8 loaders? Will they become available this year?

Hi,

PHP 8 will be supported through a new Encoder and Loader so it is unlikely that there will be a new Loader produced that will support files produced by PHP 7 encoders on PHP 8.

Just one request here. Please make it backward compatible with older versions of PHP and allow the creation of a tripple encoded file with PHP 5.6/7.1/8 versions in it. It would be also nice if this file would run on current loaders with PHP 5.6/7.x.

As I mentioned, any Loader for PHP8 is unlikely to be backwards compatible.

However, bundling will be supported, of course, so you will be able to produce files with 5.6/7.1/8 encoding included in each.
