On April 16th 2015, the PHP group released PHP 5.6.8.

Several bugs have been fixed some of them beeing security related, like CVE-2015-1351 and CVE-2015-1352. All PHP 5.6 users are encouraged to upgrade to this version.

PHP 5.6.8 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
  • Xcache, Xdebug and Xhprof are currently being worked on and should be available in the next few days

    Bonjour Guillaume, as-tu prévu de sortir la version 5.4.40 pour corriger ces failles sur la version 5.4?
    Merci

    Merci 🙂
    Au fait tu as déjà pensé à mutualiser ton effort pour le packaging? Tu as aussi le droit à des vacances non? 😛

    Any timeline on adding this for Jessie as well? We’re suffering from a bug in 5.6.7 which ended up in current stable…
