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!).
As usual :
- your feedback is always welcome. Just make sure it is useful.
- feel free to show your support, it is always greatly appreciated… 🙂

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.
Thank you Eddie, I appreciate your feedback.
Hello, I’m adding:
deb http://packages.dotdeb.org jessie all
deb-src http://packages.dotdeb.org 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?
@Ekin : these modules are built-in with every PHP SAPI. I may provide them as separate packages in a near future.
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?
@Igor : php7.0-redis has been updated to 3.0.0-rc1
@Guillaume: thank you, it’s working now!
I’d like to know this, too 🙂
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! 🙂
Any updates regarding php7.0-pear to be available? Thank you.
Do you plan on building php7.0-twig too? 😉
Is php 7.0 ZTS going to be included soon? Thx!
I’m waiting for this too….I need to use ZTS because of some applications.
