PHPNG devs boasts major WordPress performance increases

php.internals: phpng: Refactored PHP Engine with Big Performance I mprovement

It’s nice to see that the PHP team isn’t taking HHVM lying down. We have to wait for PHP 5.7 to get PHPNG and it’s 20% performance increase though.

If you’re the type who runs his/her own server, there are test build instructions. So maybe you don’t have to wait. But I wouldn’t use this in production. Not yet, anyway.
