If detected PHP version is less than 5.3:

  • Display at all time in the admin screen a yellow notice bar
  • proposed text: "We are working on the next generation Piwik to provide you with a much enhanced Web Analytics platform! Piwik 2.0 will require PHP 5.3 so please ask your server administrator or web hosting provider to update your PHP to the latest version, ideally PHP 5.4. <br/> When you upgrade to PHP 5.3 or 5.4, this message box will disappear and your Piwik server will process reports much faster using less memory. Please update PHP to get the most out of Piwik!"

This notice is meant to teach users about speed+memory advantages of upgrading + maintaining users within the piwik requirements by warning about future requirement that they can prepare at least for 3-4 months.


updating text per Benaka suggestions
