In #7323 we announced to drop support for PHP 5.3 in Piwik 3.0.
In this PR I changed to run the UI tests to PHP 5.4 as it is needed by PRs like this https://github.com/piwik/piwik/pull/8449 which requires PHP 5.4. UI tests seem to run quite a bit faster (finished in 28 minutes but possible we got a good VM)
If someone knows what the lowest available PHP 5.4 version on Travis is, let me know. I couldn't find that information. Right now they will run on the latest PHP 5.4
I also removed some code in tests that marked tests as skipped if they run on PHP 5.3. This will be no longer needed. BTW: It feels really good to remove them.
If a super user is logged in, we currently show a message PHP 5.3 has reached EOL etc. I changed this to PHP 5.4 as it reaches soon EOL and by the time it will have reached for sure. I removed the message that we will drop support for PHP 5.4 though (as we won't do this for now).
In another PR we can remove more "hacks" or workarounds that were made for PHP 5.3
What a good feeling to get rid of 5.3.x!
