4 Discussion

Klees, Richard [rklees], 2018-03-23: We (CaT) checked the breaking changes from PHP 7.0 to 7.2 that might affect ILIAS. These are:
  • Function-calls with missing parameters will lead to an error instead of a warning.
  • Dynamically calling these methods is forbidden: compact, extract, func_get_args, func_get_arg, func_num_args, get_defined_vars, mb_parse_str, parse_str
  • The index-operator will throw errors when used on strings.
  • The order of values in arrays assigned per reference will be changed back to the PHP 5.6 behaviour.
  • The use-statement in anonymus functions won't allow superglobals, $this or parameters of the anonymus function itself anymore.
  • json_decode will use JSON_OBJECT_AS_ARRAY when the second parameter is null.
There also will be new warning on some PHP-core functions that should be monitored and resolved.
Jansen, Michael [mjansen] 21 Apr 2018: When finally deciding on the min. req. PHP version for ILIAS 5.4.x, please consider the security support of the respective versions:
PHP Version Support
JourFixe, ILIAS [jourfixe], 23 APR 2018 : The list of supported software for ILIAS 5.4 has been accepted. Support of 5.6 has ended. Decision about Abandon Oracle Support is handled in separate request.
