There are however a few things we want to mention:
We are going to release a final TYPO3 v7 LTS bugfix version 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 will reach its end of life on December 31, 2018.
