        +1 for this. I'm a little disappointed how late this is being implemented. 7.1 went into active support in January 2017. As much as I love Cloudways, the lack of flexibility and speed of implementing major / common features is already making me look at alternatives.

        Any progress with this? I'd rather than have to rewrite my code because you're not supporting 7.1 yet :) Thanks!

        "Planned" for when?

        This is forcing us to leave for 2 of our clients (so far). Please update this with a schedule.

        Thank you,
        Adam

        Hello,

        Are there any plans of making the availability process of new PHP versions faster? I'm guessing you wait until Debian marks a stable version of the package.
        The thing is that in the past couple of years the PHP community is moving towards new versions a lot faster and it's much more important to keep up with the latest version because of the package availability.
        Here are some examples:

        Laravel will require 7+ in July:

        Symfony will require 7+ in November:

        Packagist stats in the past couple of years show faster adoption of new PHP versions:
        https://seld.be/notes/php-versions-stats-2017-1-edition
        (Note: this excludes most of WordPress, Drupal, Magento, ... installations and it's not accurate for entire PHP ecosystem. Developers using Packagist are much more likely to adopt new versions of PHP)

        There's a number of hosts who already support PHP 7.1: http://phpversions.info/

        With this trend it seems that it will be much more important to keep up with new versions of PHP, and having them released earlier will allow us to have more time to adapt.
        So, to repeat the question from the beginning: Are there any plans of making the availability process of new PHP version faster?

        Thanks

        C'mon, 7.1 is almost five months old already...
