What is better PHP 5.6.27 or 7.0.12?
What are the advantages of PHP 7.0.12? Both versions are offered by my provider.
Currently I use 5.6.27 and the new b2b-version 6.8.2. Do I have to consider or change sth at b2b (from PHP 5.6.27 to 7.0.12)?

I would switch to php7.

Based on this recommendation, I upgraded from PHP 5.4.16 to PHP 7.2 in order to fix a write context problem with b2evo 6.9.4. Used the remi repo for PHP 7.2 with CentOS 7, although I don't know if that matters. b2evo now seems to be working fine. However, it's throwing a number of warnings about deprecated methods. Switched the config setting for PHP errors in Production to false in order to hide them, which worked as expected.

@mcdonnej I guess many of those warnings refer to methods that we need to keep due to backwards compatibility. Can you send us some screenshots of them to take a look?
