osTicket 1.15 released

A new stable version of osTicket has just been released. The new version is 1.15, and with it heralds several important things that you need to know.  First and foremost is that you are now required to tin PHP 7.2 to 7.4.  It will not work with 7.1 or older.  Secondly, it means that the 1.12 branch is now end of life and no longer supported.  Third it introduces 2FA/MFA backends to deal with the forth coming Microsoft O365 and Google discontinuation of legacy authentication methods.

This version adds several enhancements, and improvements.  Additionally it upgrades several component packages used by the product.
