On February 19th 2015, the PHP group released PHP 5.6.6.

This release fixes several bugs and addresses CVE-2015-0235 and CVE-2015-0273. All PHP 5.6 users are encouraged to upgrade to this version. (…) The list of changes is recorded in the ChangeLog.

PHP 5.6.6 packages are now available on Dotdeb for Debian 7 “Wheezy”, on both amd64 and i386 architectures, in ZTS and non-ZTS (default) flavors.

Notes :

  • 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.
