We have just released new preconfigured packages for the latest stable branches of PHP:

* 8.0.2 for both 32 and 64-bit Windows and for macOS
* 7.4.15 for both 32 and 64-bit Windows and for macOS

Download links are available in https://aprelium.com/downloads

The macOS version is a notarized installation package which works on any Macintosh powered by macOS version 10.9 until the latest Big Sur (version 11).

Please keep in mind that PHP 8 may be not compatible with some of your scripts. So be cautious when upgrading: A detailed migration guide is available on PHP's site: https://www.php.net/manual/en/migration80.php .

We'll be waiting for your feedback about the preconfigured PHP 8 packages.

Are there any good reasons to update to the new PHP? Like better speed or fixed vulnerabilities?

If you develop your own scripts, PHP8 may be interesting as it introduces many new features at the language level: https://www.php.net/releases/8.0/en.php

PHP8 introduces also optimized Just-In-Time (JIT) code compilers that can improve performance for computing intensive scripts. But typical scripts (WordPress for example) won't profit too much from JIT.

So if you're just a "consumer" of PHP scripts, you can stick with the PHP 7.4 branch for a few months until most popular scripts are announced compatible with PHP8.
