FYI I do run tests, just not when compiling PHP 😇 @benjamincrozat Please prove me wrong!First real life tests don't look particularly good for the JIT in web apps, not good at all. @kant312 It can improve performance of specific parts of code, but detecting those parts also have an overhead:'t forget to run 'make test' I confess I never do this 🥳 @jenshaase You don't have to wait for a tag, you can pull directly from githubMy expectations?
