Upgrading to PHP 5.2.5 on RHEL and CentOS
After a little more than 2 months of waiting since the last release, PHP has been updated once again, this time to 5.2.5. The 5.2.5 release brings several security enhancements, more than 60 bug fixes, and improved performance for those of you that like arrays (and really, who doesn't?).
PHP 5.2.5 also updated the bundled version of PCRE to 7.3, although if you're a user of my repository you've been using that version for quite some time now, and the timezone database to 2007.9.
Now, what you've all been waiting for... The links! As always, I would encourage everyone reading this to add my Yum repository to your system for quick, easy updates. If you really don't want to, feel free to rebuild the Source RPM at the link below.
Update (11/19/2007): Source RPM updated to fix test issue on certain systems. No binary package updates since the change doesn't actually affect anything but the test cases.
Update (9/24/2009): Packages deleted, use the yum repository instead.
