Changelog 0.8.0 — 9th of May 2022

Notable changes

Float values handling

Allows the usage of float values, as follows:

class Foo
    /** @var 404.42|1337.42 */
    public readonly float $value;

Literal boolean true / false values handling

Thanks @danog for this feature!

Allows the usage of boolean values, as follows:

class Foo
    /** @var int|false */
    public readonly int|bool $value;

Class string of union of object handling

Allows to declare several class names in a class-string:

class Foo
    /** @var class-string<SomeClass|SomeOtherClass> */
    public readonly string $className;

Allow psalm and phpstan prefix in docblocks

Thanks @boesing for this feature!

The following annotations are now properly handled: @psalm-param, @phpstan-param, @psalm-return and @phpstan-return.

If one of those is found along with a basic @param or @return annotation, it will take precedence over the basic value.
