Which PHP version is best for CP V2?

I currently am running my production site with CP V2 rc1, using PHP 8.1 version. Is anyone running PHP 8.2 or 8.3 on their sites with CP V2 rc1? I don’t want to switch unless someone here can verify that those PHP versions are working well on their site(s). Thanks!

Unit tests for PHP 8.2 are still experimental, but I have 2 production sites running on PHP 8.3 without any trouble.

In PHP 8.2 and later, setting a value to an undeclared class property is deprecated and emits a deprecation notice. So if you have debug on likely you’ll get tons of notices from plugins that have not fixed this yet.

I am running my production sites on PHP 8.2 without any issues.

I’ve just tested my site with 8.2 - except for some annoying OOP BS errors (PHP deprecation errors, which are mostly about the PHP favorite style of OOP and not OOP in general), all is well.

cu, w0lf.

Greetings!
My blog site with ~ 200 posts (ClassicPress 2.0.0-rc1+nightly.20240209) on shared hosting had PHP 8.2 till yesterday and literally this morning I switched to 8.3. I had briefly tested on the staging site before the switch, but so far seems to work.
