The support of the same site cookies in PHP was one of the main topics discussed by Manuel Lemos and Arturs Sosins on the episode 86 of the Lately in PHP podcast.
In this episode they also talked about the PHP 7.2 feature freeze, proposals to change object arrow -> to dot . notation, array coalesce operator, native support to JSON object to arrays in PDO, an article about comparing two similar images, and the 18 years of PHP Classes.
This article also contains a podcast summary as a 3 minute video and a transcript of the summary.

We will cover as usual the latest versions of PHP. I'm not sure what exactly why it motivated this release but there are quite a few security bug fixes that happened. We'll check it out about these security releases later. There is also PHP 7.0.21, PHP 7.1.7 and we had a PHP 7.2 alpha 3 and beta 1 that were released just a few weeks ago.
And there is also a planned feature freeze and after this... actually it was last month. It was almost one month ago. And now PHP 7.0 is in security fixes mode.
Next we will comment about yet another discussion why not PHP does use dot instead of arrow to specify the members of objects/classes. This is a discussion that keeps coming.
Another topic that we will talk about is the array coalesce operator concept which will basically allow to check if a variable is really set to an array before proceeding to an operation that somehow traverses the array like foreach.
Next we will have a proposal that is planned to implement what is called the same site cookies. This is to avoid cross-site request forgery attacks. This is I think it is not yet standardized feature for Web browsers but I think it will be. So this will be the a good thing but the idea is to support it built in PHP.
Next we will talk about the proposal to support JSON fields in database access via PDO.
Next we will talk about an article about comparing two images to check if they are similar.
And finally there will be an article that just mentions celebration of the 18 years of PHP Classes.
