I'm writing to communicate an upcoming major
change in MediaWiki-Vagrant.
In the coming week, I'm going to upgrade the base image from Precise
Pangolin to Trusty Tahr, the latest version from Canonical.
This just landed in master, along with HHVM as the default interpreter.
(Zend PHP is still installed, and can be enabled via the optional 'zend'
role). I hope that you'll find MediaWiki performs substantially better with
this setup. Feedback (positive or negative) and bug reports would much be
Shiny! Ori and Tim have done a lot of work on MediaWiki core +
extensions plus bug fixes and feature enhancements for HHVM itself
with upstream to get us to the point this can happen. Faidon also put
in a huge effort on Debian packaging for HHVM to make installing the
interpreter as easy as `apt-get instal hhvm`.
I'm sure there will be a few hiccups with this switch. I hope you will
join me in helping resolve problems by filing good bug reports and
submitting patches for problems you can figure out to keep this effort
