Fedora Update Notification
2012-06-15 11:59:43

Name        : php
Product     : Fedora 17
Version     : 5.4.4
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 5.4.4. All users of PHP are encouraged to upgrade to PHP 5.4.4.

The release fixes multiple security issues: A weakness in the DES implementation of crypt and a heap overflow issue in the phar extension.

PHP 5.4.4 fixes over 30 bugs. Please note that the use of php://fd streams is now restricted to the CLI SAPI
