Feature request: deprecate php 5.2.x support

Reported by dleffler | January 19th, 2015 @ 02:32 PM | in 2.3.4 (closed)

We still support php v5.2.1 (in Exp v2.3.2), but if things seem to break prior to a release, it many times relates to calling methods not supported in php versions prior to v5.3 which do not support referencing the class using a variable, or late static bindings...therefore requiring us to use method_exists() & call_user_func() which makes the code much less readable.

    Php v5.2.x support was no longer possible as of v2.3.2 since the libraries we include no longer support v5.2.x (Swiftmailer). Even php v5.3.x is no longer even recommended now that v5.6.x is stable
