Phalcon version 4 is a departure from previous versions so ideally a new port is created to follow its scheduled release.  See more here:


I couldn't find a sensible list of changes not spread over several alpha, beta and release candidates so we start directly with release candidate 2.

Note the alpha says the following: "THIS RELEASE IS NOT BACKWARDS COMPATIBLE", see

Hopefully we can add this to FreeBSD soon.

Hello. As I can see the psr extension is missed.

To get a full list of the required PHP extensions go to https://github.com/phalcon/cphalcon/blob/95484a06ff9f1f4624b83761aba4d9222026788f/config.json#L15-L20

4.0.0-rc.2 with psr and session runtime modules

Thanks for the review!  Oops, turns out session module is needed as well which isn't in the standard package for FreeBSD.  Runs fine now.

testbuild on current with php74 failed on current, see

Comment 5 ruud 2019-12-16 09:02:02 UTC
Thnx for the report on the failing build. 
At the moment of creating this new port php74 wasn't released yet. We fixed some issues regarding php74 builds on osx in the meantime. I think this related to this issue. Some of these fixes are part of the RC.3 release, others will be part of the v4 stable release that will be dropped on Saturday (See you at the Online Release Party :D, https://blog.phalcon.io/post/release-party)
Comment 6 Serghei Iakovlev 2019-12-16 09:16:35 UTC
(In reply to Kurt Jaeger from comment #4)
These bugs related to the internal PHP 7.4 changes. PHP team decided to remove uint and ulong typedefs support. This is why build fails. We're fixed this by releasing new Zephir version that produces C-code without uint and ulong typedefs. You have to regenerate C-code using lates stable Zephir to build Phalcon v4 without these typedefs.
Comment 7 Kurt Jaeger freebsd_committer 2019-12-16 09:33:01 UTC
There's no zephir port in FreeBSD right now. So how would it be regenerated ?
Comment 8 Serghei Iakovlev 2019-12-16 09:46:59 UTC
(In reply to Kurt Jaeger from comment #7)
There are two ways:

1. Wait for a release (see https://blog.phalcon.io/post/release-party)


curl -s https://api.github.com/repos/phalcon/zephir/releases/latest \
  | grep "browser_download_url.*phar" \
  | cut -d : -f 2,3 \
  | tr -d \" \
  | wget -qi -

- Use curl to get the JSON response for the latest release
- Use grep to find the line containing file URL
- Use cut and tr to extract the URL
- Use wget to download it
Comment 9 Franco Fichtner 2019-12-16 10:21:12 UTC
I'd prefer a quick:


For the time being.  We can reenable it in the release, ok?  :)

Comment 10 Serghei Iakovlev 2019-12-16 10:23:44 UTC
(In reply to Franco Fichtner from comment #9)
Yes, I think so.
Comment 11 ruud 2019-12-16 11:11:02 UTC
Sounds good Franco let's try to get the new port in and upgrade to v4 release. As soon as possible
Comment 12 Kurt Jaeger freebsd_committer 2019-12-16 11:42:53 UTC
