@phonebo.cx Agree with @billsimon As a php developer, think of how much slower the code is running on php 5.4 or 5.5 than on 7.0. It's about a 70% speed improvement to go to php 7.0
You're kidding, right?If you had tried to use FreePBX 13 with PHP 5.6 or higher, you would have seen the issues. Obviously you haven't, so why are you even trying to ask?

I wish for factual discussion that progresses the technology. Historical bugs that no longer exist are not a good basis for making decisions. That is all I will say.I don't think you understand. It is not our job to argue with you. It is your job to help us. If you do not wish to help, then please do not interact. We do not like troublemakers like you. But check your history! Dashboard was perfectly broken! Many other things did not work, or gave strange errors.
They are, when they were present when we made the decisions. And there are still more bugs!Historical bugs that no longer exist are not a good basis for making decisions.
I welcome one improvement to the code signing code.We have. We are happy with this implementation, as it does what it is designed to do. However, it does not allow third parties to act as signatories easliy. This is one of the first things we are going to fix.
This can be easily done by changing the hard-coded GPG key in GPG.class.php, but that just moves the authority. We aim to open the authority up, like your web browser has multiple trusted CAs. That is the significant design flaw in module signatures.
We have also discovered issues with PHP 5.6 and higher. We will not be supporting PHP 5.6 or 7, as only FreePBX 14 is meant to work with that (there are many changes, please look at core and framework 14 branches yourself for the commits). This means we are limiting our usability of FreePBX 13 to Ubuntu 14.04 and CentOS 7. This will be put on the website soon.
