I need to migrate to php version 7

Does q2a work with this version?
And do you recommend to use php 7?

Can you give some details of the problems you’re having on PHP 7? I know there were some notices on PHP 7.1 (fixed in Q2A 1.8) but they don’t break anything on the site.

No problem with q2a.
I had some problems with some plugins by Sama like "Deprecated: Methods with the same name as their class will not be constructors in a future version of PHP;" which I fixed.

Yes, it does and I found it to be working much better on PHP 7.

@pupi1985 Thanks for the correction. I just looked at travis log and commented, my mistake.

You should be able to use 7.0.x without any warnings/logs (plugins might generate some but it would depend on the plugin). Anyway. v1.8 will be out soon and there won't be many changes from the beta to the release version.
