Recently I upgraded PHP on my VPS to PHP 7.2 from 5.6. When visiting my Maian Music installation I received an error message that the required Mcrypt module wasn't available.

As far as I understand Mcrypt was removed from PHP 7.2 ( Luckily I found this post: that allowed me to install the module and get Maian Music working again.

My question is: will the script be updated so that Mcrypt is not required anymore?

[Edit] It looks like I have to update my installation to v. 2.7 (from 2.4) I assume that will solve the problem?
