On March 20th 2015, the PHP group released PHP 5.6.7.
Several bugs have been fixed as well as CVE-2015-0231, CVE-2015-2305 and CVE-2015-2331. All PHP 5.6 users are encouraged to upgrade to this version.
PHP 5.6.7 packages are now available on Dotdeb for Debian 7 “Wheezy”, on both amd64 and i386 architectures, in ZTS and non-ZTS (default) flavors.
- Regression : php5-memcached still lacks JSON support
- Missing packages : Xcache, Xdebug and Xhprof are still missing, I’m still working on it, sorry for the delay
- End of support : Spplus won’t be supported anymore. Pinba’s fate hasn’t been decided yet.

The update went good but in a subsequent ‘apt-get update’ I get:
W: GPG error: http://packages.dotdeb.org wheezy-php56 Release: The following signatures were invalid: BADSIG E9C74FEEA2098A6E Guillaume Plessis
@skp : could you please make sure that you have http://www.dotdeb.org/dotdeb.gpg in your APT trusted keys, and then relaunch “apt-get update”. This error happens when I’m just publishing packages while you run your “apt-get update”.
I just re-runned apt-get update and the problem disappeared by itself. Race condition 🙂
OK, tring to install 5.6 and when I do and run php -v from the command line I get…

@Brian : could you please send me (gui@localhost) more details? http://localhost:8080/2012/08/24/how-to-post-useful-bug-reports/
Any news about Xdebug? Absence of this extension prevents the migration to PHP 5.6.
Guillaume, possible to add xcache for 5.6 please? What caching do you suggest if not xcache?
@Alex : yes, I should work on it in the next few days. Sorry for the delay.
Don’t you think you can make php 7 repo soon? I find myself it is rather stable even to use for production. It works seamlessly with 99.8% of code.
But currently there are no adequate way to install it. Zend builds are crazy, without some basic things like MySQL extention (mysql removed in php7, but should be installed as PECL extention) and seems like don’t have php-fpm binary. Virtual machines are broken or just not applicable to read use case. Repository from you would be cool.
@Alexander : I can’t guarantee anything before PHP 7 is declared stable. I may provide betas or RCs for Jessie, nothing sure.
