There are however a few things we want to highlight before we bring v7 LTS to an end:
We are going to release a last TYPO3 v7 LTS bugfix release on December 11, 2018. This will bring PHP 7.3 compatibility (expected release on December 6, 2018). This will also mean there is no free-of-charge TYPO3 version anymore that works with PHP 5.x - as PHP 5.6 end of life is near as well (December 31, 2018).
This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://typo3.org/article/this-is-the-end-for-typo3-v7-lts/
