Neos currently requires PHP >= 7.1. I suggest to raise this to PHP >= 7.2 starting at the next released version, so that we can embrace properly working return types and optional return types. I just stumbled over this while moving some Event Sourced CR code (which is PHP >=7.2) into Neos.ContentRepository.
I’d like to poll if this is fine for everybody – if not, please reply to this post and add some reasons why you’d like to keep PHP 7.1 as min dependency.
- raise minimum PHP version to PHP 7.2 for next release
- keep minimum PHP version at PHP 7.1 for next release (please leave comment with reason)
PS: To clarify: This poll is open for the whole community, not just core members
