      I thought I would start a topic to capture any issues anyone finds using php 5.6. If you have what you think might be a 5.6 issue add it here. I will investigate each one, and if it’s not 5.6 related I’ll move the issue to another topic.

      To date we have had feedback from two users:

      1 – reporting that kiwitrees is working fine (PHP updated on an existing kiwitrees (3.0.0) installation)
      2 – reporting a number of Zend library errors.

      1 is obviously good news, but 2 is hard to confirm.

      Now that ver. 3.1.0 is released I have started my own testing. So far I have not seen any Zend errors myself.

      I have identified some issues setting up a new installation of kiwitrees though. They are already fixed ready for a 3.1.1 release. I will not release that yet though. Better to wait for more testing. It will not effect any existing users, and as we require membership of for new users I will know when any of those are likely to need this.

      Zend issues

      I may have found the problem. I have been able to reproduce this error message:

      Deprecated: iconv_set_encoding[]: Use of iconv.internal_encoding is deprecated in C:\xampp\htdocs\kiwitrees\library\Zend\Locale\Format.php on line 313

      Not sure if that is the one previously seen, but it will be easy enough to fix, I think.

      EDIT (22/07/2015): Zend issues fixed.
