As per changeset [44982].

Do we need to change $required_php_version = '7.4'; on this file trunk/src/wp-includes/version.php

@mukesh27 Changing the version there would prevent anyone from running WordPress on PHP 5.6.20-7.3, which we don't want to do just yet. That variable is an enforced requirement. The intent here is to update the recommended PHP version.
