Obtaining PHPUnit 5.5
Alternatively, you may use Composer to download and install PHPUnit as well as its dependencies.
PHPUnit 5.5 requires PHP 5.6; using the latest version of PHP is highly recommended. The documentation has a detailed list of the PHP extensions that are required to use PHPUnit.
The goal of our release process is to deliver new features into the hands of our users every two months. The next release with new features will be PHPUnit 5.6. It is currently in development and will become stable on October 7, 2016.
PHPUnit 6, which is scheduled for February 3, 2017, will no longer support PHP 5. There will also be quite a few, potentially breaking, changes that you can read about here.
Support for PHPUnit 5
Following our release process, PHPUnit 5 will receive bug fixes until February 2, 2018.
