Subject Re: PHP/Python versions for Thin Clients
Date Tue, 15 May 2018 02:30:51 GMT
Hi Dmitriy,

PHP 5.6 and 7.0 are going to be end-of-life shortly [1]. So the minimal
version for the Thin Client is going to be either 7.1 or 7.2 (I would
finalize this along with the PHP Thin Client API proposal).

As for Python, there is still some legacy code on 2.7, the oldest active
2.x version. However the use of Python 2 is declining as it’s not actively
developed, doesn’t get new features, and its maintenance is going to be
stopped in 2020 [2]. Python 3 is a strong leader with 75% and Python 2 is
used as the main interpreter by only 25% (rapidly declining) [3]. So I'm
leaning towards supporting 3.4+ (the oldest active 3.x version). However, I
would keep the 2.7 in mind for API design.

I hope it makes sense.

Thanks,
p.
