    Great move! Writing code for PHP 5.2 is a pain.

    Thank you for this decision! Hopefully it will also help WordPress to ditch the support for <5.6 PHP versions faster as well when more theme/plugin authors follow you example.

    Ideally – WordPress would push actively for the outphasing of older – no longer maintained – PHP versions so they can optimize their own code too and move on to, for example, a better hashing algorithm like bcrypt for the passwords (see https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/21022).

    I stopped supporting older PHP version (< 5.4) because writing was a pain. I much prefer

    Great move.
