Rumor has it that Google is adding support for a new runtime language for Google App Engine. If you take a closer look at their roadmap you can see that for sure another runtime language will be added. But which one will be ? Java or PHP ? According to some reports, Google said that they cannot yet say the name of the new runtime language but they indicated that is one being demanded by the community. If you follow what languages were requested you can see that Java is in the lead, followed by PHP. If you want to express your vote to PHP just go here and star that thread. You don’t need to post anything since posting will send an email to everyone. Let’s hope PHP will be the one choosen!
