On March 17th, the PHP Group released PHP 5.3.6. This maintainance release, that focuses on security, is now available on Dotdeb for Debian 6.0 “Squeeze” in amd64 and i386 flavours.
The compatibility with the official Debian packages has been improved and you (especially the FPM users) should really take care of some important changes that I made :
- the intl extension is now built in a separate package : php5-intl
- the FPM binary is now /usr/sbin/php5-fpm (previously /usr/bin/php5-fpm)
- the FPM configuration file is now /etc/php5/fpm/php-fpm.conf (previously /etc/php5/fpm/php5-fpm.conf)
- the FPM pools have to be moved to /etc/php5/fpm/pool.d/ (previously /etc/php5/fpm/pools/)
As usual, please read the Changelog before upgrading.
Note : The PHP 5.3.6 packages for Debian 5.0 “Lenny” should be released soon.
Update : the PHP 5.3.6 packages for Debian 5.0 “Lenny” are now available on http://php53.dotdeb.org/
