On January 10th 2014, the PHP group has released PHP 5.5.8. This release fixes about 20 bugs against PHP 5.5.7 components.

As a consequence, PHP 5.5.8 packages are now available on Dotdeb for Debian 7.0 “Wheezy”, on both amd64 and i386 architectures.

Please read the Changelog and the migration guide (be aware of the backward incompatible changes) before upgrading.

Last but not least, if you find Dotdeb useful, you may want to show your support.

    Thanks.

    Change log about OPCache was very important for me :

    Fixed revalidate_path=1 behavior to avoid caching of symlinks values.
    Fixed Issue #140: “opcache.enable_file_override” doesn’t respect “opcache.revalidate_freq”.

    When I follow the install instructions to update to php 5.5 I keep getting the following error when I run apt-get update:

    W: Failed to fetch http://packages.dotdeb.org/dists/wheezy/Release Unable to find expected entry ‘all/binary-armhf/Packages’ in Release file (Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file)

    W: Failed to fetch http://packages.dotdeb.org/dists/wheezy-php55/Release Unable to find expected entry ‘all/binary-armhf/Packages’ in Release file (Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file)

    E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

    My sources.list looks like this:

    deb http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/ wheezy main contrib non-free rpi
    deb-src http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/ wheezy main contrib non-free rpi
    deb http://packages.dotdeb.org wheezy all
    deb-src http://packages.dotdeb.org wheezy all
    deb http://packages.dotdeb.org wheezy-php55 all
    deb-src http://packages.dotdeb.org wheezy-php55 all

    I have debian 7.2 installed
