I have been following this as properly. I am probably not positive if Ioncube is actually shutting down and turning into deserted ware – however they’re getting actual shut.There’s actually no excuse for PHP 8 help to take this lengthy.Ioncube is (was) a significant participant in PHP improvement. They need to have began engaged on an encoder the second PHP 8 went into alpha stage and stayed engaged on it by way of it is full launch. However they did not try this.Initiatives that rely on Ioncube – like WHMCS – actually need to maneuver away from Ioncube, at the very least that is my opinion.If I recall, Ioncube did the identical factor when PHP 7.0 was launched, though the delay wasn’t any the place close to so long as this PHP 8.0 delay is.What different PHP encoders are there? I do know there’s Sourceguardian. There’s phpBolt – however I do not see loads of dialogue about it. Are there others?
