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.

When is the version of ionCube Encoder supporting PHP 8 released? Can you give at least an estimated date? Our decision whether to use PHP 8 depends on the release date of the ionCube Encoder.

Hi,

We do not have an actual release date as yet for the version 11 Encoder or for an encoder for PHP 8.

However, version 11 should appear in Q1 2021. As I have mentioned previously, there will not be a backwards compatible loader for PHP 8.

I hear you! The latest development has definitely taken longer than anticipated, but it is progressing.

When you say, "our main project is released with php8 support", do you mean that you are using PHP 8 specific language features and it is not designed to work on PHP 7 or earlier, or something else? I'm wondering which component you specifically need.

Can you specify that more? 50%, 80% alpha? beta? RC?

I probably just need a compatible loader. Because the main project runs under php8, but don't use explicit php8 code. The same code runs also under PHP 7.4 / 7.3

This should be the same problem that almost everyone here on the forum has.

What's really needed is a date, which we can't give at the moment. There are actually two developments in the pipeline to be released that relate to each other, PHP 7.4 language support in the Encoder and PHP 8 Encoder/Loader support. Right now you can run code on PHP 7.4, but developers cannot use new features of the language that appeared in 7.4, and therefore 8, and supporting those features has taken longer than anticipated. So the next release will introduce support for the new language features in 7.4, and the release after that will be for PHP 8.

Same shit, different day

One month later we are at the same situation. No timeline, a little more aggression and a touch of hopelessness.

It's fine that you explain the situation to us. But in the end we now need a reliable timeline from you! Nothing else!

We have reached the next stage. Now there is no reaction anymore.

Bonus: "PHP 8.1.0 Alpha 1 available for testing" since June 10th
