Not before phpBB 3.2RC2 is released.

This extension will only support 3.2 due to changes in 3.2 regarding notifications.

This is probably the best reason to start using 3.2 when the time comes. Image

This should be a reason to update to 3.2 after all :)
Awesome! Finally it's being made :) Can't thank you enough for the hard work.

The PHP 7 requirement makes it useless though.

Why? phpBB 3.2 fully support PHP7, and it is the most recent PHP version. It makes no sense to develop new stuff for older PHP versions.

Hosting providers won't ever upgrade their PHP versions to 7 unless previous ones deprecate.

A lot of ISPs are already providing PHP7 support, the active support for PHP 5.6 end in January next year.
