Change minimum required version to 5.3.2 #221

wants to merge 1 commit into from

3 participants


I have changed minimum required version of PHP to 5.3.2 because of the stream_resolve_include_path function ( which is used in lib\Magento\Autoload\IncludePath.php on line 42


Magento 2 uses some components of Zend Framework 2 (and hopefully will use more), which oficially requires PHP >= 5.3.3, so it's the real requirement.

  * Converted jQuery popupwindow.js plugin to a jQuery widget
  * Replaced Prototype code for Switch/Maestro and Solo credit card with jQuery widget
  * Replaced Prototype Validation with jQuery validation plugin
  * Converted credit card payment tool tip to jQuery in all themes

  * Fixed suggest widget to no longer show deleted items
* Improved `Magento_Test_Helper_ObjectManager` in unit tests to discover types of constructor arguments
* Removed workaround of unsetting objects referenced in `tearDown()` of integration tests
* Updated Menu and Navigation layout, including redesigned backend menu item System -> My Account
* Made store address format consistent with format of shipping origin address
* Added ability to navigate directly to a section in backend system configuration, with corresponding accordion expanded
* Removed some of unnecessary coupling between several modules
* General improvements to unit and integration test code coverage, as well as compliance with coding standards
* Application framework:
  * Implemented ability to compress/decompress data in a cache backend
  * Verified ability to disable in configuration triggering of system upgrade
  * Abolished code pools and the mechanism of overriding files using include\_path (without alternative)
  * Implemented segmentation of cache by types -- ability to assign separate cache configuration per type. Reviewed and verified possibility to isolate configuration cache segment
  * Segregated application configuration into several layers. Primary configuration is used by the object manager and loaded before application is initialized
  * Instead of `Zend\Di`, implemented `Magento\ObjectManager` library that has less features and suits Magento application needs better in terms of performance
  * Introduced "context" object as dependencies for super-classes (`Mage_Core_Model_Abstract`, `Mage_Core_Block_Abstract`, etc) to reduce complexity of their constructors' API
  * Implemented tools for pre-populating all auto-generated proxy and factory classes, used by dependency injection framework
  * Replaced "developer" mode with general "mode", that has 3 states: developer, default, production
  * In "production" mode, the application will not invoke fallback for static view files (images, CSS-files, JavaScript). Instead, it will assume that they are already placed in a fully qualified location. Added tools for populating static view files from `app` directory into `pub/static`
  * Introduced support for Twig templating
    * template rendering, including phtml, was abstracted into a 'Template Engine' to make support for other template engines easier
    * included Magento-specific Twig functions and filters
    * phtml templates can now only access public methods of the corresponding Block class
    * ability to define dependencies on data provided by a service that is then made available to the templates -- eliminates some of the code in Blocks
  * Introduced support for webhooks and callbacks: outbound HTTP requests for notifications and real-time integrations
  * Added ability to define options for System Configuration select fields in XML: static options are defined inline, dynamic options can reuse data provided by a service
* Moved product business logic found in blocks into `Mage_Catalog_Service_Product` to consolidate logic into a single structure that both controllers and web services can invoke
* Converted product view page to demonstrate use of Twig templates and services
* Updated shipping carrier `collectRates` logic to support remote callbacks and converted the FedEx shipping carrier to comply with the same interface
* Added webhook support for the following topics: `customer/created`, `customer/updated`, `customer/deleted`, and `order/created`

  * Various improvements in UI
  * Improved image sizing functionality
  * Improved test coverage
  * Ability to launch physical themes, including workflow preview mode and workflow design mode
  * Ability to duplicate existing themes for customization
