Xdebug 3.0.0 support?
« on: October 15, 2020, 09:30:51 am »
I got a notification email that xdebug 3.0.0 for php is on its way, and just wanted to wave a flag here to see if support for this is on the SE road map?

It looks like there are some big internal changes in th debugger, but I am not sure how much these break the debugging API.

I don't have any urgent need for this, but from time to time I have php projects, and it is nice to have access to the best tools.

Here is the top section of the notification:
The new PECL package xdebug-3.0.0beta1 (beta) has been released at

Release notes
Wed, Oct 14, 2020 - xdebug 3.0.0beta1

This is a BETA release, and not ready for production environments.

Xdebug 3 has many changes. Please read the upgrade guide at

Xdebug 3 documentation is available at

It's not on the roadmap yet.  Hard to say how much effort it will involve to support this in addition to the existing versions we support from skimming their documentation.  We'll have to take a closer look at it. 

Thanks for bringing it up, I didn't know they had a new version in beta, so it was a surprise for me at least.
