PHP version 7.1.0 is released!
RC6 was GOLD, so version 7.1.0 GA is just released, at planed date.
A great thanks to all developers who have contributed to this new major and long awaiting version of PHP and thanks to all testers of the RC versions who have allowed us to deliver a good quality version.
RPM are available in the remi-php71 repository for Fedora ≥ 23 and Enterprise Linux ≥ 6 (RHEL, CentOS) and as Software Collection in the remi-safe repository.
Read the PHP 7.1.0 Release Announcement.
So the tribe get a new member:
Replacement of default PHP by version 7.1 installation (simplest):
yum-config-manager --enable remi-php71 yum update php\*
The update may fail if some installed extensions are not yet available for PHP 7, thus avoid breaking your configuration without information, thanks to ABI compatibility protection (php(zend-abi)). After checking, you may have to remove these extensions before running the update. All the extensions compatible with PHP 7 are also available for PHP 7.1 (excepted phalcon).
Parallel installation of version 7.1 as Software Collection (x86_64 only, recommended for tests):
yum install php71
To be noticed :
- EL7 rpm are build using RHEL-7.2
- EL6 rpm are build using RHEL-6.8
- this version will be the default version in Fedora 26, see PHP 7.1
- various extensions are already available, see the PECL extension RPM status page
