On March 31st 2016, the PHP group published PHP 7.0.5.
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 7.0.5 are now available for Debian 8 “Jessie” on amd64 and i386 architectures.
Please note that :
- PHP 7 and PHP 5 from Jessie are now co-installable on the same machine
- Packages of the following PECL extensions are now available : APCu, APCu_bc, geoip, igbinary, imagick, memcached, mongodb, msgpack, redis and xdebug. Careful, PHP 7 support from some of them is still very young.
- The thread-safe version of all these packages will be published soon.
As usual :
