XF 1.4 Support for PHP 5.6.0?

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.

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.

@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.
