We got a lot of questions about 32bit binaries still in the comments to the release blog. But those were pretty much all about VS2017. I'd personally be happy to move more towards 64 bit, but we should somehow find out how much 32bit is still required by our users.

Sounds good to me, unless anybody knows about any reasons why we should stay on 7.2.

I think we should strongly consider dropping 32bit for iOS.
