    This might be the first post ever published on WordPress using PHP7.4.

    I have every reason to believe that this is the first post ever published on WordPress using PHP7.4. It’s likely coming a bit premature, but if you aren’t willing to have some fun, then why maintain upstream language compatibility of an open source project.
