PHP 7.0.7 for Jessie

On May 26th 2016, the PHP group published PHP 7.0.7.

This is a security release. Several security bugs were fixed in this release. All PHP 7.0 users are encouraged to upgrade to this version.

Packages of PHP 7.0.7 are now available for Debian 8 “Jessie” on amd64 and i386 architectures, along with the following PECL extensions : APCu, APCu_bc, geoip, igbinary, imagick, memcached, mongodb, msgpack, redis and debug (Careful, PHP 7 support from some of them is still very young!).

Thank you for your help with packaging.

In return I can help you with your English, which is very good. (I was an English teacher for 20 years).

Feedback is a “non-count noun”. As such it never is in the plural (does not have an “s” at the end, and it never takes the indifinite article before it (a or an); So, you should say “Your feedback is welcome; Just make sure it is useful”.

Non-count nouns, like advice, information, etc. are always singular. We must use a “count noun” with a non-count noun to ‘count’ a non-count noun. For example a bag of flour (flour is non-count, but we can count bags), a piece of information, a bit of advice, a loaf or bread, a pound of meat, a pound of sugar, a bit of luck, a piece of furniture … bit, bag, piece, pound … are all count nouns – they can be used with a or an (the indefinate article). Flour, meat, sugar, information, furniture, advice, luck and feedback, just to name a fw, are non-count nouns – never to be used with a or an, and never in the plural.

If you give me a way to send you or upload a scan, I will send you the original page for a great English grammar book that explains non-count nouns!

I appreciate you work, and I am just trying to make you and your site look more professional.

Best regards,


Hello, I’m adding:
deb jessie all
deb-src jessie all
to /etc/apt/sources.list and do apt-get update after adding the gpg.
Then when I try apt-cache search or apt-get install for:
php7.0-mbstring, php7.0-soap, php7.0-zip, php7.0-bcmath, php7.0-iconv
it cannot locate them. Why can it be and what can I do to get all latest?

Do you have a time estimate as to when php7.0-pear will be made available?

I see that php7.0-redis isn’t updated yet, it would be nice to have at least commit ad3c116 where a tedious segfault is fixed. Do you have any plan to update this?

Hi Guillaume,

The php7 ssh2 extension has just been released as an alpha on PECL:

I’ve been using it from source for months and it’s been working well.

If you could include this in your next package update that would be amazing! 🙂
