Official Heroku PHP support updated with Composer, HHVM and NGINX support

A long due update to the Heroku PHP buildpack —which adds support for modern PHP development— is now in public beta. Their Devcenter Article has more info.

You know what’s really awesome about it? You can require heroku/heroku-buildpack-php in your Composer dev requirements and run your apps locally with a Procfile and Foreman, just like every other supported language on Heroku.

Congrats David Zülke!

PSA: Once the official PHP buildpack is stable, I plan to no longer support my own PHP buildpack.
