Bacula-Web 7.0.2 is a maintenance / bugfixes release which include not less than 13 bugfixes (including 3 major bugs).
I would strongly encourage people to upgrade theyre version to the latest one.

You'll find more details in the the release note.

Thanks to all contributors for your precious help, it wouldn't be possible without you.

Here's a list of majors changes made in this version.

Supported PHP version

As of Bacula-Web 7.0.2, the miminal supported PHP version is 5.3.4, even if PHP 5.3 isn't supported anymore (see the link below).

Even if the support of PHP 5.3 have been discontinued, within the next major feature release, Bacula-Web will still be "supported" on PHP 5.3.

But keep in mind that the requirements for the upcoming version of Bacula-Web (probably 7.1.0) will be at least PHP 5.4 or higher.
