  • The PHP buildpack received some updates:

    • Support for PHP 8.x was added in addition to PHP 7.x. By default, App Platform will use PHP 7.x unless the app specifies a version requirement via Composer.
    • Support for Composer 2.x was added in addition to Composer 1.x. App Platform will use the same version of Composer that generated the app’s composer.lock file.

    For more information and configuration options, see the buildpack’s documentation page.
