On July 11th 2013, the PHP group has released PHP 5.3.27.

The PHP development team announces the immediate availability of PHP 5.3.27. About 10 bugs were fixed, including a security fix in the XML parser (Bug #65236).

Please Note: This will be the last regular release of the PHP 5.3 series. All users of PHP are encouraged to upgrade to PHP 5.4 or PHP 5.5. The PHP 5.3 series will receive only security fixes for the next year.

The corresponding packages are now available on Dotdeb for Debian 6.0 “Squeeze”, on both amd64 and i386 architectures.

As usual, please read the ChangeLog before upgrading and be sure to use to the latest packages before reporting any issue.

And if you like Dotdeb, feel free to show your support.

    I run php5-memcache 5.3.27-1~dotdeb.0 and php5-memcached 5.3.27-1~dotdeb.0 on Debian Wheezy and get error messages when i run -> php -i | grep php.ini

    Error message is
    PHP Warning: PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library ‘/usr/lib/php5/20090626/’ – cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory in Unknown on line 0

    but i have installed libmemcached10

    Do you have any idea?

      @Andre : php5-memcache does not depend on libmemcache. You certainly have installed php5-memcached (with a D). Be sure it comes from Dotdeb as well as libmemcached10.

    I am currently using Debian 7 wheezy and I need to have PHP5.3 running.

    I did all necessary and I managed to have it working.
    But now I would like to instal php5-memcache, but somehow I’m just being able to instal if upgrade to 5.4 which is not an option now…

    my sources.list reads:

    deb-src wheezy/updates main contrib

    # wheezy-updates, previously known as ‘volatile’
    deb wheezy-updates main contrib
    deb-src wheezy-updates main contrib

    #squeeze updates
    deb squeeze main contrib non-free
    deb squeeze/updates main contrib non-free
    deb squeeze/updates main

    deb stable all
    deb-src stable all

    Can you please help?
    Thank you
