On January 22nd 2015, the PHP group released PHP 5.6.5.
This release fixes several bugs as well as CVE-2015-0231, CVE-2014-9427 and CVE-2015-0232. All PHP 5.6 users are encouraged to upgrade to this version. (…) The list of changes is recorded in the ChangeLog.
PHP 5.6.5 packages are now available on Dotdeb for Debian 7.7 “Wheezy”, on both amd64 and i386 architectures.
- Because of performance issues with Zend thread safety (pthreads depends on it), I had to disable it on the wheezy-php56 repo. Users using pthreads now have to use the wheezy-php56-zts repository instead. See the instructions for more details
- Regression : php5-memcached still lacks JSON support
- Missing packages : Xcache, Xdebug and Xhprof are still missing, I’m working on it
- End of support : Spplus won’t be supported anymore. Pinba’s fate hasn’t been decided yet.
