    PHP 5.6.0 is due to be released in a week. @Mike, @Kier, are there any constraints with XenForo?
    I plan to upgrade to PHP 5.6.0 as soon is released.

    Just a casual question: Unless you want to be on the bleeding edge, why upgrade right away? I waited for PHP 5.5.x and MySQL 5.6.x and even Apache 2.4.x a bit before I jumped. So the server remains stable.

    Hi Gene,

    Ya, the casual question. I always upgrade to latest version, I build my own RPM's.. in fact I upgrade a lot of software, some being not even available elsewhere, in order to improve the server performance and stability. IMO, it is a misconception thinking that running older software makes your environment more stable. :)

    Looking forward to hear from developers if there are any conflicts with with PHP 5.6.0, which provides many improvements.

    There are no known issues with PHP 5.6 in the latest versions of XF. (The BC breaks in 5.6 are generally fairly small, though there are some.)

    I should clarify that my comment related specifically to the most recent version. There is an issue in 1.3.1. See the first change here: https://xenforo.com/community/threads/xenforo-1-3-4-released.78372/ I don't necessarily know the full extent of it, though it does interfere with email address validation.

    Thanks @Mike, I was looking at the server logs and so far nothing crazy spitted during user registration, email notification, etc. @MattW does have an issue on XenForo 1.4.0 with bouncing emails, he will report the bug.

    Did you have to tweak anything ? Works out of the box?

    I run on php 5.5.15 and would like to try out the newer version.

    @Jattitude, I just installed the AXIVO rpms and used the previous igbinary/memcached.ini settings. No issues.
    @MattW can comment more on the 1.4.0 issues he encountered, I'm running 1.3.1 on live site.

    The issues were down to my own setup and ipv6
