I am currently working on a PHP project where I need to handle versioning and backward compatibility. I've been exploring various options and came across the concept of namespaces in PHP. From my understanding, namespaces can help in organizing the code and prevent naming conflicts, but I'm not sure if they can be used to implement versioning or backward compatibility.
I want to know if namespaces can serve this purpose in PHP. Can I use namespaces to manage different versions of my code and ensure backward compatibility? If not, what would be the best approach to handle versioning and backward compatibility in PHP?
Any insights or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
