The next version of passbolt will be built using cakephp 3 that support php 5.6 by default. Support for 5.6 will end with Cakephp4. The end of life for php 5.x is near.
This proposal is to drop support for php 5.6 to reduce the workload on the integration testing front, since apart from Centos most distros support 7.0 or 7.1 as default.
- Keep supporting PHP v5 until end of life
- Drop support for PHP v5 and only support v7.x with passbolt release v2
