On January 7th 2016, the PHP group published PHP 7.0.2.
31 reported bugs has been fixed, including 6 security related issues. All PHP 7.0 users are encouraged to upgrade to this version.
Packages of PHP 7.0.2 are now available for Debian 8 “Jessie” on amd64 and i386 architectures.
Please note that :
- You should remove any PHP5 packages before upgrading
- Packages of the PECL extensions (Memcache, Memcached, Mongo, Redis, Xdebug…) are still missing.
- The thread-safe version of all these packages will be published soon.
Please make sure that you understand the above 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 because they have new names because they shouldn’t conflict with any PHP5 installation. So to get PHP 7.0.2 , just follow the regular instructions for Jessie.
And as usual, feel free to show your support, it is always greatly appreciated… 🙂
