PHP is a language well known for its many dynamic features that are occasionally somewhat overused.

Let’s examine it further.
It took a while, but we have finally gotten Peachpie up to speed with the latest development over at Microsoft. Project.json is now history and MSBuild has taken over as the go-to build platform of Microsoft and Visual Studio.

Peachpie compiler itself is up to version 0.5.0 and so we wanted to focus on adding more functionality to our Visual Studio Code extension. This short article explains what is new in the Peachpie extension.
