PHP CPP v2.2.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2019-04-05 // over 2 years ago
  • ⚠ WARNING: Breaking changes to the ABI and API regarding the Error class

    🚀 Warning: commit dfe4a94 breaks build on PHP7.0 and PHP7.1. Needs fix before proper release

    • 👻 Renamed exception to throwable
    • Enumeration Php::Error has been renamed to Php::ErrorType to make room for the new Php::Error class
    • ➕ Added new class Php::Error that can be used for throwing errors (PHP7 normally throws errors instead of reporting fatal errors, which is what PHP5 did)
    • 👻 Php::Exception is now only used for exceptions and no longer for errors (so extensions can be written to only catch exceptions, and not the errors)
    • ✂ Removed support for Exception::file() and Exception::line()
    • A couple of functions that used to report fatal errors, now throw an Php::Error object instead
    • 🛠 fixed exception handling for class methods and functions (uncaught Error objects caused a full crash, now they cause a fatal error)
    • 👻 when calling an invalid function we no longer throw an exception, but an error
    • 📇 renamed ErrorType to Message
    • 👻 closures now get an empty string as name because exception handling functions sometimes need access to the name
    • 🛠 fixed issue when dealing with optional object parameters

Previous changes from v2.1.4
