[mapserver-dev] RFC 117 Question

Hi All,

We discussed RFC 117: PHP 7 MapScript Support Through SWIG [1] and had a 

PHP mapscript has historically been a custom interface where the other 
mapscript flavors have been SWIG based. There was discussion in the past 
about converting PHP to use SWIG, but that didn't at the time move 
forward for some reason(s) like:

* SWIG had issues with PHP?
* moving to SWIG would break exisiting PHP mapscript applications
* others?

So my question is are these still issues?

With the release 7.0 we can have breaking changes, but they should be 
documented in the migration guide if needed.

Since I have not read and major discussion on this, my presumption is 
that this is no longer an issue.
