Slackware New PHP5 packages are available for Slackware 10.1, 10.2, 11.0, 12.0, and -current to fix security and other bugs.

New PHP5 packages are available for Slackware 10.1, 10.2, 11.0, 12.0,
and -current to fix security and other bugs.

Note that PHP5 was not officially supported in Slackware 10.1 or 10.2
(being in the /testing directory), and was not the default version of
PHP for Slackware 11.0 (being in the /extra directory), but updates are
being provided anyway.


Here are the details from the Slackware 12.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/php-5.2.5-i486-1_slack12.0.tgz:
  Upgraded to php-5.2.5.
  This fixes bugs and security issues.
  For more information, see:
    http://www.php.net/releases/5_2_5.php
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-4887
  (* Security fix *)
+--------------------------+


Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
directly from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
