Geeklog's Next Release and the PHP Version Requirement

As we get ready for the next version of Geeklog (either version 2.1.2 or 2.2.0) support for PHP 7 is being discussed. The current version of Geeklog (2.1.1) requires at least PHP 5.2.0. The code for the next version of Geeklog and the core plugins supports PHP 7.0.x but Pear and a few other 3rd party libraries included with Geeklog do not. To upgrade these libraries so they support PHP 7 we must raise the minimum PHP version required to run Geeklog to 5.6.x.

A poll has been created so we can find out from the community what PHP version they are currently using and what version they can upgrade too. This will help us decide better what the new minimum version well be and how important PHP 7 is to the community.

To give you an ideal on the state of the development of PHP itself, support for PHP version 5.3.x and 5.4.x has been out of development for a while now and PHP 5.5.x is currently only receiving security fixes to the end of the year. Support for PHP version 5.6.x will continue to receive fixes until the end of 2018.

To help us decide what version of PHP should be a requirement for Geeklog please participate in our poll:

Geeklog on Gitter

We have recently opened a Geeklog room on Gitter as a replacement for IRC. Gitter allows developers to chat together online as a group, or in private conversations one on one. Gitter integrates well with Github (which Geeklog recently swithed too)  including the repositories, issues and activities. You can access Gitter via their website and apps (iOS and Android).

The Geeklog room on Gitter is open to the public for viewing but you will need to create a free account if you wish to participate, ask a question or answer someone's query. If you are an aspiring programmer or seasoned developer and wish to particpate in developing Geeklog or coding a plugin, come and introduce yourself.
