In 3 months the PHP 5.6 branch is End Of Live.

Supported versions: http://php.net/supported-versions.php

Here at ApacheLounge we follow the VC versions in line with supported PHP releases.

PHP 5.6 is build with VC11, so we can drop ?

Also with VC11 we are dealing that it is not fully compliant with C99 , and sometimes a pain to build and test, we have to change the source (C99 is the C programming language standard, VC11 supports C89, VC14/15 C99).

What do you think ?

I'm using PHP 5.6 without any problems with the Apache VC15 compilation.

A switch to PHP 7.0/7.1 is not planned anymore, as both versions have problems with the Windows compilations. PHP 7.2 will take some time to wait, as many PHP applications are not ready yet Mad .
