PHP 5.6.0 Release Candidate
The first Release Candidate of PHP 5.6.0 is released, see PHP 5.6.0RC1 is available.
RPM are available in the remi-php56 repository for Fedora 19 to 20 and for Enterprise Linux 5 to 7 (RHEL, CentOS)
Attention : this is a development preview, for test, not for production use.
Changes in the packages :
- The new php-dbg packages provides the interactive debugger
- Each configuration file (/etc/php.d) have a numerical prefix, to ensure correct load order.
yum --enablerepo=remi,remi-php56 update php\*
This new version is one of the Fedora 21 approved changes, see PHP 5.6
PHP 5.6.0RC1 is also already available in Fedora rawhide.
Running this development version for months, I haven't encountered any big issue with the web applications I use or with the test suites I run during packages build.
Most of the extensions are also available.
