New "remi-php70" repository
I've just open the remi-php70 repository for Fedora ≥ 21 and Enterprise Linux ≥ 6.
Current version is PHP 7.0.0beta2 with about 25 extensions which are already compatible.
This repository provides developement versions which are not suitable for production usage.
The repository configuration is provided by the latest version of the remi-release package:
As for other remi's repositories, it is disabled by default, so the update is an administrator choice.
E.g. to update the PHP system version:
yum --enablerepo=remi update remi-release yum --enablerepo=remi-php70 update php\*
As lot of extensions are not yet available, the update may fail, in this case you have to remove not yet compatible extensions, or wait for their update.
I don't plan to open this repository for EL-5 which is near to end of life.
PHP 7.0 as Software Collection stay in "remi-test" (before the switch to "remi") as there is no conflicts with the base packages.
