The fnmatch problem can be solved with a few lines of code but is closed (wontfix) on github saying to "not use Windows" even though 1.x worked with it. This makes upgrading pretty pointless. Why not take some time to fix those bugs as well?
Guess not, dropping platforms by upping the requirements just makes it easier to get people on the payed plan. One patch isn't going to change that.

This really annoys me. You're making ridiculous claims about us (trying to break the download product to boost migration to VF.com) based on pure assumptions. At the end of the day, we've provided you with all the tools (bootstrap.before.php) to make your installation work with the inferior version of PHP you're running. You could apply those "few lines of code" to your own install and be on your merry way.If you don't trust us, and don't respect us, why are you using Vanilla?But just for you, here's a commit to master. Now stop crying.https://github.com/vanillaforums/Garden/commit/083740965282d35a40a6483dc2553977e353339c
the elitist attitude towards others on github and then again over here brushing people off by telling them "not to use Windows" or get their host to upgrade PHP.
