This week the PHP development team released PHP 5.5.12 and 5.4.28. The release contained numerous bug fixes, including an important one for CVE-2014-0185 regarding PHP-FPM. If you run PHP with PHP-FPM we recommend you upgrade ASAP.

If you are using our repositories, upgrading is simple. Here are instructions on how to use (or upgrade) our Ubuntu/Debian or CentOS PHP packages.

Pimple

Pimple is a small Dependency Injection Container for PHP that consists of just one file and one class (about 80 lines of code). It is used by Silex and other projects. Just a few days ago, it was released as an implementation of the library written in C as PHP extension, providing a performance boost for those that need it. We have prepared packages of the extension for CentOS 6, Ubuntu 12, and Debian 6. Ubuntu 14 and Debian 7 will follow soon.

Package names for Ubuntu & Debian:

- php53-pimple_2.1-3_amd64.deb
- php54-pimple_2.1-3_amd64.deb
- php55-pimple_2.1-3_amd64.deb

Package names forCentOS:

- php53-pimple-2.1-1.x86_64.rpm
- php54-pimple-2.1-1.x86_64.rpm
- php55-pimple-2.1-1.x86_64.rpm

We will update these packages as new versions come out. Please use this at your own risk!
