The update to PHP 7.1.0 brought developers a bunch of cool new improvements such as Catching multiple exceptions types or Nullable Types. For the full list of new features, head over to the official PHP release announcement. In version 7.1.1, more bugs were fixed to make the PHP 7.1.x branch even more stable.

- Joomla! >= 3.6.4
- Drupal >= 8.2.3
