On November 12th 2015, the PHP group published the seventh release candidate of the upcoming new major branch, PHP 7 :
PHP 7.0.0 RC 7 contains fixes for 17 reported bugs.
This release candidate is unplanned and ships instead of the announced RTM for the reasons of yet additional quality improvement. If no major issues appear within the usual two-week test period, the 7.0.0 general availability (GA) release will be brought out. You can also read the full list of planned releases on our wiki.
Packages of PHP 7.0-RC7 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-RC7 , just follow the instructions.
