Zend OPCache & APC
« on March 29th, 2013, 01:05 AM »
Today PHP 5.5 beta 2 has been released. In beta 1 Zend OPCache was added although disabled by default (I think for the beta period only). It looks firmly like this will be the replacement for APC going forward as it is included in the core, and will have to be maintained for each new release.

Any thought? :)

It's not a total replacement for APC, as the RFC even notes - https://wiki.php.net/rfc/optimizerplus - but having an opcoce cache as a core feature will, if properly implemented, be very worthwhile.

The problem is that I can actually see cruddier hosts not implementing it because OMG IT USES MORE MEMORY, without understanding what it's actually doing and why in all likelihood it would probably use less memory in sustained usage than the current model does.

Maybe because opcache isn't the official name?
