On August 22nd 2013, the PHP group has released PHP 5.5.3. Since the previously-packaged PHP 5.5.1 version, about 20 bugs were fixed, including security issue in OpenSSL module (CVE-2013-4248) and session fixation problem (CVE-2011-4718).
As a consequence, PHP 5.5.3 packages are now available on Dotdeb for Debian 7.0 “Wheezy”, on both amd64 and i386 architectures, with the following changes :
- each SAPI (apache2, apache2filter, CLI, CGI, FPM, embed) has now its own /etc/php5/SAPI/conf.d/ subdirectory, not just a symlink to a common one, so it can have its own list of activated modules (it involved some more tests, so sorry for the delay),
- the php5-mongo package is now available, allowing you interacting with MongoDB servers,
- the php5-fpm init script now reports syntax errors with full error messages.
Last but not least, if you find Dotdeb useful, you may want to show your support.
