PHP 8 Brings Just In Time Compiling

I hadn't been paying attention to PHP 8 so when Deano requested testing the new Cheetah beta on PHP 8 I had to first install it on the server.  In the process I did a bit of reading and see that PHP 8 has Just In Time compiling.  This will offer a significant boost to websites running php scripts.  I suggest you look at PHP 8 if possible.  If the new release of Cheetah has no issues running under PHP 8 I plan on moving the Cheetah based sites to PHP 8 as soon as possible.  Of course there may be issues with third party modules under PHP 8 so I will need to test third party modules as well before committing the sites to PHP 8; hopefully if any third party module does have issues I can fix them.
