#4443 closed defect (fixed)

Update PHP page claims WordPress does support 5.2

On the page about updating PHP it states:

WordPress itself works with PHP versions as far back as 5.2.4 (we’re currently recommending version 7.3, so this is great backward compatibility!),


As of today (release of WordPress 5.2) this seems no longer true :)
