We’re keeping a close eye on PHP7 and what it means for the future of the language. We know it’s coming and will eventually effect the way we work and how we write PHP. The earlier we can get eyes on the new paradigm, the better.

Installing in your local dev machine is risky, especially if you have ongoing work. As usual, Vagrant comes to the rescue!

Rasmus Lerdorf has put together a Vagrant box to ease in the setup and isolate your testing.

If you use Atlas, check out the box here. Otherwise, the readme is available on Github.
