As announced, PHP version 5.4.45 is the last official release of PHP 5.4

Which means that since version 5.5.30 and version 5.6.14 have been released, some security vulnerabilities are not, and won't be, fixed by the PHP project.

To keep a secure installation, the upgrade to a maintained version is strongly recommended:

  • PHP 5.5 is in security support mode only (no other bug will be fixed) until July 2016.
  • PHP 5.6 is in active support mode, and will be maintained until August 2017 December 2018.
  • PHP 7.0 is in under development, in stabilization phase (Release Candidate) and should be released as stable quite soon.

However, given the very important number of downloads by the users of my repository (~47%)  the version is still available in  remi repository for Enterprise Linux (RHEL, CentOS...) and Fedora (Software Collections) and includes the latest security fix.

Warning : this is a best effort action, depending of my spare time, without any warranty, only to give users more time to migrate. This can only be temporary, and upgrade must be the priority.
