there has been some preliminary tests but don't believe this is a priority at the moment

You are welcome to start testing and reporting on any issues..

I am not qualified for any testing since I don t understand php...
I just asked cause my provider is pushing for people to change,  supose is for the benefits they have in performance in the server side...

Thanks for your reply

there are really speed and memory benefits.. but seems bizarrely early for a host to be pushing it-- fancy that.. an early adopter host!!!!

Most are still wondering whether to offer 5.4!..  ;)

Good basis to start as tester. You dont need to understand php, just read this outdated, but still valid post http://forum.virtuemart.net/index.php?topic=78322.0

As Milbo says.. just do a clean install.. no extras and see what happens.. if white screens etc turn on as much debugging as you can and report back here exactly what u find.. this is testing

Hi Milbo

We have been testing Joomla 3.5 beta with PHP7.

The pages are loading much faster now :-) but VM is giving fatal errors.

Joomla's stable version is coming soon in a few days. When will VM support PHP7 and J3.5?

Thank you for all your great work :-D
