Entering Final Comment Period:Edit

Every week the team announces the 'final comment period' for RFCs which are reaching a decision. After the week-long period, the ArchCom makes a final decision based on the discussion.  Express your opinions now. This week's FCPs are:

  • T129435 RFC: Drop support for running without mbstring (Gabriel): The PHP mbstring module enables multi-lingual string handling. Given good distribution support and significant performance benefits, most participants have expressed support for requiring the module. If you think that we should continue to provide fall-backs despite relatively poor performance, then please comment now.
