PHP 7.0.16 for Jessie

On February 16th 2017, the PHP group published PHP 7.0.16.

Several bugs have been fixed. All PHP 7.0 users are encouraged to upgrade to this version.

Packages of PHP 7.0.16 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, ssh2 and xdebug.


Redis 3.2.8

Redis 3.2.7 has been released on January 31st 2017 to fix important security and correctness issues.

It is especially important to upgrade for Redis Cluster users and for users running Redis in their laptop since a cross-scripting attack is fixed in this release…

Then Redis 3.2.8 has been released on February 12th 2017 to fix potential deadlocks with Redis 3.2.7 and a crash after a socket error.

In both cases, the upgrade urgency is high.

The Redis 3.2.8 packages are now available :

  • for Debian 8 “Jessie” and Debian 7 “Wheezy”
  • on both amd64 and i386 architectures.

Nginx 1.10.3 for Jessie and Wheezy

Nginx 1.10.3 has been released on January 31st 2017, to fix a bunch of bugs.

As a consequence, packages of Nginx 1.10.3 are now available :

  • for Debian 8 “Jessie” (with or without full HTTP2 support – see the instructions) and for Debian 7 “Wheezy”
  • On both amd64 and i386 architectures.

Please note that :

  • I had to remove the Pinba module from the nginx-full and nginx-extras flavors to prevent an unexpected/odd behavior with the realip directives,
  • I will include the dual SPDY/HTTP2 patch from Cloudflare in a future update

For more details about which modules are included in the different Nginx flavors (light, full and extras), just take a look at the configuration options of their respective sections in the Jessie and Wheezy Makefiles.
