Web Development, WordPress

App Engine 1.8.0 is now available and includes a Limited Preview of the PHP runtime – your top requested feature.

It also offers deep integration with other parts of Cloud Platform including Google Cloud SQL and Cloud Storage.

This could be a big deal, especially if they build tools to make it easy to install WordPress on App Engine.
