Since PHP 5 was introduced the class var keyword became an alias of public, so there is a discussion now about a proposal to remove the support for the var keyword in PHP 8 and deprecated in PHP 7.1.

That was one of the main topics discussed by Manuel Lemos and Arturs Sosins in the episode 69 of the Lately in PHP podcast hangout.

They also talked about several other proposals like the types of deprecated features in PHP 7.1, as well other feature additions to PHP 7.1 such as using interfaces in traits, pluggable transports for the mail function, being able to determine if an array has only numeric keys, etc..

Listen to the podcast, or watch the hangout video to learn more about these interesting PHP topics.
