Textpattern with problems in PHP version 7.4

While upgrading the PHP version of my hosting, I got an error message ‘Deprecated: Function get_magic_quotes_gpc () is deprecated in “/lib/constants.php”’

I just had to go back to the old version and everything went back to work. I don’t know if the error is common knowledge. Anyway, I just wanted to leave the warning that TextPattern seems to be having problems with PHP 7.4. Keep using version 7.3 for now.

Re: Textpattern with problems in PHP version 7.4

Thank you for the report. PHP 7.4 was only released a few weeks ago and we’re not that fast at releases :) But we have patched it for the next Textpattern release, due out very soon.

If you want to test out the latest development build in a sandbox, try the demo server. Pete keeps the dev installation up-to-date with the latest bleeding edge PHP versions, as demonstrated in the demo site thread so we can keep an eye on what’s coming down the pipe and patch it. He’s a marvellous chap.

Okay, thanks for the answer.

7.4.1 is at RC1 stage, I would not be surprised if it dropped tomorrow (Tuesday) around Christmas Eve. I tend to avoid RC releases, though that’s a trivial policy decision based on…well, nothing of note.

Since we’re at point releases for 7.4 now, I’ll leave it at non-RC releases for now, and start on RC & beta releases for 7.5 or 8.0 (whichever route they take).

I was correct, 7.4.1 just appeared. Clearly Christmas Eve not the best time for a release…

Demo site updating now.
