I just noticed in the change log that the new PHP 7.1 loaders supports only files encoded with the encoder for PHP 7.1.

Are there any plans to support scripts encoded for 5.6 on 7.1? It is much more complicated to offer multiple encoded versions of a script for different PHP versions, especially 5.6 is already supported on 7.0.

I would like to see 5.6 support on all 7.0, 7.1, and 7.2 loaders

In general we have backwards/forwards compatibility across a range of versions, and with no other compiled code provider doing so it's one of our USP's, however PHP 7 is so different internally from PHP 5 that doing so on 7.1 and beyond is not feasible. The inherent complexity and challenges to overcome are precisely why support for PHP 5.6 on 7.0 took a relatively long time to release.

Our first support for PHP 7.2 will be to run PHP 7.1 files on it though, and barring any curve balls in the PHP 7 series, we expect to have a range of compatibility as usual as new generations of the PHP 7 language emerge.
