Last week we got a report about a possible enhancement of our password hashing and we thought this is a good opportunity to finally get rid of outdated PHP requirements in Kirby 2, test Kirby in 7.2 and fix a couple bugs additionally.
Kirby 2.5.11 now requires at least PHP 5.6. Older PHP versions are no longer supported by PHP’s core team and that’s why you should urgently update your server. We definitely recommend PHP 7.1+. Not just for security reasons, but also because of the massive performance benefits.

Thank you very much to all the testers, who helped us to test the release candidate!
