On December 18th 2014, the PHP group released PHP 5.6.4.

Two security-related bugs were fixed in this release, including the fix for CVE-2014-8142. All PHP 5.4 users are encouraged to upgrade to this version.

PHP 5.6.4 packages are now available on Dotdeb for Debian 7.7 “Wheezy”, on both amd64 and i386 architectures.

Please also note these points :

  • Regression : php5-memcached lacks JSON support
  • Missing packages : Xcachen Xdebug and Xhprof are missing for now
  • End of support : Spplus won’t be supported anymore. Pinba’s fates hasn’t been decided yet.

As a consequence :

To install PHP 5.6 or to upgrade from previous version just follow the instructions.

    Depuis la première build de PHP 5.6 jusqu’à la dernière en date, j’ai le même problème… ça ne fonctionne pas. Chaque page affiche un Internal Server Error.
    Dans le syslog, j’ai :
    kernel: php-cgi[31335]: segfault at 67 ip 00000000007c0850 sp 00007fff305fba00 error 4 in php5-cgi[400000+84a000]

    Du coup je suis toujours en 5.5 en prod alors que mon environnement de dev a été passé à 5.6 depuis un moment pour assurer une migration sans accroc :-/

    Any help?!

    Guillaume, could you share the problems that you’ve spotted while building xdebug and xhprof?
    I would like to try to help and I am interested to know about them anyway.

    Wonderful job.

    I have a problem with your website. Firefox shows me an ssl error sec_error_unknown_issuer.
