Read the PHP 8.3.0 Release Announcement and its Addendum for new features detailed description.

For memory, this is the result of 6 months of work for me to provide these packages, starting in June for Software Collections of alpha versions, in August for module streams of RC versions, and also a lot of work on extensions to provide a mostly full PHP 8.3 stack.

emblem-notice-24.pngInstallation: read the Repository configuration and choose installation mode, or follow the Configuration Wizard instructions.

Replacement of default PHP by version 8.3 installation (simplest):

Fedora modular or Enterprise Linux 8:

dnf module reset php
dnf module install php:remi-8.3

Enterprise Linux 7:

yum-config-manager --enable remi-php83
yum update php\*

Parallel installation of version 8.3 as Software Collection (recommended for tests):

yum install php83
