Prefork pre-loads PHP apps (like WordPress) before serving requests

Automattic has released a pretty fancy PHP class called Prefork, that enables pre-loading capability to large PHP apps, such as WordPress. This makes it so that WordPress doesn’t have to completely reload itself every time you load the page. It’s got some pretty meaty requirements and the setup process isn’t for a beginner, but this is definitely a promising tool for increased performance for your self-managed servers and WordPress installs.
