Fedora Update Notification
2012-07-21 02:22:54

Name        : php
Product     : Fedora 17
Version     : 5.4.5
Release     : 1.fc17
URL         : http://www.php.net/
Summary     : PHP scripting language for creating dynamic web sites
Description :
PHP is an HTML-embedded scripting language. PHP attempts to make it
easy for developers to write dynamically generated web pages. PHP also
offers built-in database integration for several commercial and
non-commercial database management systems, so writing a
database-enabled webpage with PHP is fairly simple. The most common
use of PHP coding is probably as a replacement for CGI scripts.

The php package contains the module which adds support for the PHP
language to Apache HTTP Server.

Update Information:

The PHP development team would like to announce the immediate availability of PHP 5.4.5. This release fixes over 30 bugs and includes a fix for a security related overflow issue in the stream implementation (CVE-2012-2688). All users of PHP are encouraged to upgrade to PHP 5.4.5.
