  • Beginning of the Servebolt changelog

The last few months we have deployed so many new features that we thought it was time to do this in a structured way. We begin our journey in the time right after the first PHP 7.3 release, PHP 5.6 in its last month and PHP 7.0 in EOL, support for http2push preload, Servebolt Admin Panel in version 15.1 with all its goodies. From this point forward we will share small and large developments on the Servebolt platform in this changelog.
