sabre/vobject 4 released

We just released sabre/vobject 4. This is a new major version, and comes with a number of new features and also BC breaking changes. The API is largely the same, but there are a few subtle differences.

New feature highlights

  • Support for PHP 7.
  • Requires PHP 5.5.
  • Support for xCal and xCard, which are XML representations of iCalendar and vCard.
  • Added a 'BirthdayCalendarGenerator'. Give it a list of vCards, and it will create an iCalendar object with birthdays.
  • Lots of speed and memory improvements.
  • Support for the new VAVAILABILITY iCalendar component.
  • Added a command-line utility to merge duplicate vcards.
  • Using DateTimeImmutable everywhere we used DateTime.
  • Denial of service-protection in the RecurrenceIterator.
  • Better RDATE support.

The full changelog can be found on Github


Simply run:

composer require sabre/vobject ^4.0
