Had to go back to 3.5 GA because the console stopped responding like one of the RC builds of 3.5.

@Kista Yeah that is a known problem with PHP after version 5.4. Running PHP as a CLI application is not the normal use case for PHP, so most other people using PHP will probably never see that issue and TBH, I don’t even know if the PHP team knows about it. If i had more time I would submit a ticket, but I have not been able to reproduce it consistently other than just waiting until it happens. There was a suggestion on the Budabot forums to run it using a terminal emulator (e.g., http://cmder.net/) as a workaround for the issue, but I have not tested that.

PHP 5.4 was released in 2012 and it reached end-of-life in 2015, which is the reason I chose to upgrade to PHP 7.
