I can't find any explanation why php 8 is required for Better Formats 1.x-1.1.0. Wondering if update is possible without requirement in .info file.

Accepted answer

The requirement was introduced for one fix to a `uasort` callback. I believe we can avoid that and remove the requirement. https://github.com/backdrop-contrib/better_formats/issues/13


It's unclear why this was added. The same thing was added to the D7 module, but in D7 they have two concurrent versions released earlier today, 1.0 and 2.0. Only 2.0 requires php 8. I've pinged the Backdrop maintainer on Zulip. You may want to open an issue in the issue queue.
