PHP 7.2 released - Narf - 12-01-2017

PHP 7.2 release announcement

In addition to the new features and other general improvements, it's even faster than 7.0 and 7.1! Go try it, and even upgrade to it if you can. Smile

Of course, if you encounter any CodeIgniter bugs related to it, you should also report them to us. So far there's only one known issue (an E_DEPRECATION notice in validate_email), which will be fixed in our next release.

No further problems running CI 3.1.6 under PHP 7 or higher?


RE: PHP 7.2 released - SomeGuy - 12-01-2017

Upgraded my XAMPP install to use 7.2 last night. No issues with CI3.1.6 so far.

I haven't seen unknown issues about PHP 7.2.

I hope it will be the default PHP for Ubuntu 18.04.

Further problems? I don't understand your question.

Thanks @Narf

o.k. I am not quite familiar with all changes but what is obvious difference is removing of Mcrypt at 7.2.

What happens with CI Encrypt in that case?
Can this new lib Sodium replace the old mcrypt functionalities used at Encrypt lib or?

CI_Encrypt has been deprecated since CI 3.0.0, and mcrypt since PHP 7.1. You shouldn't have relied on either of them.
CI_Encryption (a different library) covers everything that CI_Encrypt did and uses OpenSSL by default.

libsodium does of course replace mcrypt functionality, but functionality is one thing and the offered algorithms are another - those won't match.

I've just hit https://github.com/bcit-ci/CodeIgniter/issues/5300.

When's v3.1.7 going to be released?
