Is iTunes 12 really required for v5?

Is it possible to use v5 with iTunes 11.4? I see in the requirements it says iTunes 12.6, but I wasn't sure if that meant older iTunes won't work at all, or if merely some features might not work.

I have a strong dislike for the UI changes introduced in iTunes 12, so I've stayed on 11.

    Hey Jon,

    you'll probably get a warning message from beaTunes, but most things will probably work as expected.

    That said, I haven't tested it.
