Packages of PHP 7.0-RC5 are now available for Debian 8 “Jessie” on amd64 and i386 architectures.
Disclaimer : THIS IS A DEVELOPMENT PREVIEW (from a PHP upstream and from a Dotdeb/Debian packaging perspectives) – DO NOT USE IT IN PRODUCTION!
- Don’t upgrade any staging/production/critical environments yet, and use these RC packages at your own risk!
- Make sure that you understand the PHP/Debian/Dotdeb changes and that you don’t need any of the missing features/packages
- Your feedbacks are always welcome. Just make sure they are useful.
These packages have been published on the main repository for Jessie. So to test PHP 7.0-RC5 , just follow the instructions.
