current state of affairs (considering the release of 6.2 LTS):
* Ubuntu 12.04 LTS = PHP 5.3.10
* Debian Wheezy 7.0 = PHP 5.4.4
* RHEL 7 (will appear on autumn 2013) = most probably PHP 5.5.x (as
current Fedora 19)
* CentOS = follows RHEL releases 1-to-1
So with 5.3.7 minimum requirement we are "fine" for 6.2.
For the next release (6.3 April/2014), we can even rise requirements to
PHP 5.4, once Ubuntu 14.04 LTS will be released most probably with PHP
Please also note that Fedora and thus also RHEL7 + CentOS7 will switch
from MySQL to MariaDB (5.5.31). So this has also be taken into
consideration while we are working on TYPO3 6.2.
Good that we have written that down, because we can then even consider
other components compatibility using this rules, like ImageMagick /
GraphicsMagick, Ghostscript, libgd, etc.
