Dependabot's PHP support is out of beta

We released beta support for PHP back in June last year. Today, we're blessing it with full release status. 🎉

Dependabot is now running on over 100 PHP repos, and it's our fastest growing language. Our PHP support isn't perfect1 but if you have a good test suite then it's ready for you to rely on.

We'll keep improving Dependabot based on your feedback, so keep it coming!



  1. The issue we're aware of is that Dependabot ignores PHP platform requirements. If you're using PHP 7.0+ this should be fine, but Dependabot may generate PRs that are incompatible with PHP 5.6. There's an open issue with more details here.

Dependabot helps keep your dependencies up-to-date. It's free for personal accounts and open source, and always will be.
