The PHP development team announces the immediate availability of PHP 8.0.0. This release marks the latest major release of the PHP language.

PHP 8.0 comes with numerous improvements and new features such as:

    Union Types
    Named Arguments
    Match Expressions
    Attributes
    Constructor Property Promotion
    Nullsafe Operator
    Weak Maps
    Just In Time Compilation
    And much much more...

Just-In-Time compilation
PHP 8 introduces two JIT compilation engines. Tracing JIT, the most promising of the two, shows about 3 times better performance on synthetic benchmarks and 1.5–2 times improvement on some specific long-running applications. Typical application performance is on par with PHP 7.4.

I’m looking for a blog that speculates sci fi like tech like Dyson spheres and Faster than light travel. The blog should be relatively new and posting every week.

Not a blog, but you might want to have a look at StackExchange's Worldbuilding section.
