you have a point, we are dealing with a momentum in release cycle and removals. Honestly, I don't know what the future holds, but I do appreciate this huge effort on types.

Part of me thinks PHP 8 will be more or less 7.4 with all the deprecated stuff gone, and a few new bits. If so, then I'm all for it.

Initially I was sceptical about the E_ALL errors by default, but it should force developers to be better. Production servers will have templates configurations through Ansible or similar, so I'm not worried there.

Nikita Popov said that in his experience moving from 7.4 to 8 should be fine. I agree with you, silencing errors by default is not a good thing, so it's a nice evolution.
