Yeah, there's been a lot of talk and work on the performance and it's become way better with PHP7. From 5.4 on there has been small but super valuable improvements in the core syntax as well but since nothing breaks backwards compatibility and there's not much overlap with existing, the basics have not evolved as much as I'd like to see.
