A few days ago, the first release candidate of PHP 5.3.0 has been published by the PHP Group, providing many improvements :
- Namespaces support
- Late static binding
- MySQL native driver
- Phar support…
I just built the packages for Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 “Lenny” on amd64 and i386 and I will maintain them during the whole release cycle (RC2 and so on…).
Please note that they should NOT be installed on production servers : Suhosin and some important patches are not applied, PECL extensions are not available (yet)… They’re here for testing purpose only.
To fetch them, just add these temporary entries in your /etc/apt/sources.list and upgrade your instances :
deb http://php53.dotdeb.org stable all deb-src http://php53.dotdeb.org stable all
But please DO read the full announcement before any further move.

I just uploaded new packages that fix a typo in the /etc/php5/conf.d/*.ini and that have mysql(nd)-related extensions that work.
PHP 5.3.0 RC2 has been published.
I’m working on it 🙂
Good job for DotDeb, very good service for Debian.

oh – didn’t have shot tags enabled. bugger. ignore me.
eval() broken (no context), mysqli_stmt::bind_param() (or call_user_func_array()) broken (error it expects a variable instead of constant, when it gets variable in fact). My old apps all crashed (Eval is evil, could be avoided most of the time, but bind_param()? What’s wrong with that?) No joy here.
@Harry : Hello. First of all, you may tell us a bit more about your config : debian release, sources.list, PHP version, installed extensions…
Be sure to have the last release, review your configuration, browse bugs.php.net, try to reproduce your problem, give us the problématic piece of code….
It’s too long to post it here. Please give me an e-mail address to write, I’ll send you the code and sources.list.
