Testing phpBB on new version of php

Post by Danielx64 » Fri Jun 20, 2014 1:06 am

I have just receive news that PHP 5.6 is now in RC and I would like to know how the developers go about testing a new version of php. Do you just test all of the features and take note of any errors in the php error logs?

Pretty much. This is another perfect reason why we have implemented test cases using PHPUnit and Travis. :geek:

We already run all of our test suite against 5.6 and do not have any errors, but manual testing wouldn't hurt.
