Magento 2 GitHub Pull Requests – Max’s TOP favourites

Here is my list of Pull Requests which I selected for your attention.


There was a discussion around bumping up Magento 2 module version in case PHP 7+ version is increased. Find out more at Doctrine website PHP 7.1 requirement for Doctrine packages post written by Andreas Braun. In other words, Magento 2 team confirms the same approach as for Zend Framework and Doctrine projects.

Alan Storm, well known in Magento Community started new series of blog posts called Just Enough C for PHP. It will be very interesting for PHP folks to get a clear understanding on how PHP functions works and its implementation on C side.

As you may notice, Magento 2 is going to support PHP 7+ only. It means we, as developers will get all the benefits introduced as part of PHP 7. Igor Minialo asks an opinion about using strict_mode=1 for the entire Magento 2 project. Make sure to vote and share your opinion.

This is all for the Magento Tech Digest #2. Let me know in comments below if I missed an interesting technical post. In case you would like to contribute to the next Magento Tech Digest please send me a message with your proposed link.
