PEAR 1.10.0dev1 brings PHP 7 compatibility!
Jul 28, 2015 @ 12:14:42

As was announced on both the PEAR blog and Christian Weiske's blog, the PEAR project has made a major update to add PHP7 support preparing it for the upcoming major release.

The new PEAR installer release adds PHP 7 support while dropping support for PHP 4 - 5.3. It also fixes a nasty SSL issue that made it hard to use on PHP 5.6. With the update, strict warnings about static calls to a non-static PEAR::isError() are a thing of the past.

I've just published the first preview version: PEAR 1.10.0dev1.

Upgrading your version of the PEAR installer is as simple as a call to pear upgrade specifying this dev1 release (command is included in the post). He also links to some pre-release versions of the go-pear and pear-nozlib installers.
