Even tho i did read the reply on a former post about php 7 and fusion just telling people to "downgrade" then the problem is not everyone has that option. Some hosts offer php 7 and thats that, and while you can swap, it would still be a good idea to get it secured via php 7.
So question is will there be support for php 7 for the latest stable version or wil it come in a never version?

For most of the part of the "wait" for upgrading to PHP-Fusion 9 is basically due to Forum Data migration on most of the part, which I do also encountered certain problems during migration of data for this very site. We'll need to run a poll soon which will help the devs to see if my observations are correct.
Recently, I've been upgrading forum multiple times using the data from this site to a newer site. From my observations, while the upgrade file is OK and do what it is intended to do, what we did basically was omitted implementation checks before doing an action. I thought it was a resource hog, but as it turns out, it was necessary. Since v7 has been out for almost a 10 years before the release of the first version 9.0 public, most active sites have some sort of mods going on, or even modded on the table itself, that including this very site which I'm currently working on.
This is where the checks and assists is required for the upgrade files. So, I'll be testing and patching the Git upgrade files for forum soon as I'm done with my work of setting up a new site here.
