  • Deep-Cloning of readonly Properties: It ensures full replication of properties, including readonly ones, and preserves object consistency and integrity when cloning. Clear distinction between modifiable and non-modifiable properties improves code clarity. Ensures consistent cloning behavior by making it easier to write structured and understandable code.

  • New #[\\\\Override] Attribute: It ensures that a method has a defined relationship in the code, eliminating errors due to confusion when implementing methods. Its inclusion greatly improves the transparency and structure of the code, making it easier to understand and maintain.

  • Optimized Performance: PHP 8.3 delivers significant performance improvements, resulting in faster load times and more responsive web applications.

  • New json_validate() Function: It allows error checking without consuming excessive memory when trying to convert JSON data to arrays or objects, unlike json_decode().
