PHP 5.6.7 for Wheezy

On March 20th 2015, the PHP group released PHP 5.6.7.

Several bugs have been fixed as well as CVE-2015-0231, CVE-2015-2305 and CVE-2015-2331. All PHP 5.6 users are encouraged to upgrade to this version.

PHP 5.6.7 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 still working on it, sorry for the delay
  • End of support : Spplus won’t be supported anymore. Pinba’s fate hasn’t been decided yet.

Hey.

Don’t you think you can make php 7 repo soon? I find myself it is rather stable even to use for production. It works seamlessly with 99.8% of code.

But currently there are no adequate way to install it. Zend builds are crazy, without some basic things like MySQL extention (mysql removed in php7, but should be installed as PECL extention) and seems like don’t have php-fpm binary. Virtual machines are broken or just not applicable to read use case. Repository from you would be cool.
