the PHP packages for Debian have been updated to version 5.5.37, 5.6.23 and 7.0.8. Additional changes were:
  • the MySQL driver was replaced by mysqlnd. This provides a better integration with PHP and promises more performance. The dependency to the "libmysqlclient" package now is omitted.
  • from now on we also provide ImageMagick as PHP modules (package "php-5.6-opt-imagick" resp. "php-7.0-opt-imagick")
