Hi devs, For focal the server team will be transitioning PHP to 7.4 over the coming weeks.
Since version 7.0, upstream PHP has adopted a regular release cadence, with one release per year. Each release is supported for 2 years, plus a third year of security critical fixes. Changes from 7.3 to 7.4 are modest, but the extra year of upstream support is a tangible benefit for the Ubuntu LTS. The language binary, php7.4, is already sync'd to universe in focal. Remaining parts of the stack are in process by Debian, but are expected to enter experimental/universe soon. Initial build testing shows the changes that have been queued in Debian's git package repos have addressed most build issues, and will simply need synced/merged. Let me know if there are questions/concerns. Otherwise we will plan to initiate the transition within the next week or so. Bryce 1: https://www.php.net/supported-versions.php
