PHP 7.0.27 for Jessie

On January 4th 2018, the PHP group published PHP 7.0.27.

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.

This release marks the end of the two years active support period for the 7.0 branch. The further releases of the 7.0 branch will be issued on demand and contain only critical security relevant bug fixes. The security support is provided till December 3rd, 2018. It is a good time to plan the migration to PHP 7.1 or 7.2.
