New Release

TypeRocket v5.1 Has Launched

Table of Contents


TypeRocket v5.1 has launched. Much has changed in this release, mainly the new WordPress 6.0 and PHP 7.4 minimum requirements. We made these changes for several reasons:

  1. The hosting companies I've looked into only support PHP 7.4 and higher.
  2. PHP security fixes are ending for PHP 7.4 on the 28th of Nov 2022. PHP 7.2 support ended a long time ago.
  3. I have battle-tested TypeRocket on PHP 7.4 for a few years. All tests passed.
  4. We would get all the new things in PHP since 7.2. From 7.3 and 7.4. Mainly with PHP 7.4, we can start using "typed properties", "arrow functions", and "unpacking inside arrays".
  5. TypeRocket will run faster on top of PHP 7.4 as an overall developer experience.
