Vapor: PHP 8.0 Runtime Is Now Available

Nov, 25 2020#vapor

PHP 8 has just been released and it includes many new features and improvements:

As you may know, Vapor allows you to specify which PHP version a given environment runs on. Of course, we want you to be able to use the latest PHP features as soon as possible. Beginning today, in addition to php-7.3 and php-7.4 runtime, you may now specify php-8.0 as your application's runtime:

id: 2
name: vapor-laravel-app
        runtime: php-8.0
            - 'composer install --no-dev'

Keep in mind you may need to update your Laravel application and its dependencies to their latest versions before utilizing PHP 8.

We hope you enjoy this new addition to Laravel Vapor. At Laravel, we're committed to providing you with the most robust and developer friendly PHP experience in the world. If you haven't checked out Vapor, now is a great time to start! You can create your account today at:
