PHP 8.3 Alpha Released

The first alpha release of the upcoming PHP version, PHP 8.3, is now available for testing. Alpha builds are not meant to be used in any production servers, but serves as a point-release to be used for testing the upcoming version.

PHP 8.3.0 is scheduled for release on 23rd of November, 2023.

PHP 8.3 Alpha 1 is the first tagged version created by the newly appointed PHP 8.3 Release Managers, Pierrick Charron, Jakub Zelenka, and Calvin Buckley.

As per the schedule, there are two more alpha releases, followed by PHP 8.3's feature freeze on 18th of July 2023. When a PHP version has reached its feature-freeze, there will be no more RFCs to discuss and implement any major changes to that version.
