The new major PHP 5.3 release is finally available in the [extra] repository.
This update will require manual adjustments: * update your php.ini; see
php.ini.pacnew as reference * module path is now /usr/lib/php/modules * session,
mbstring and zlib are now built in * the fileinfo module is now built in and no
longer a separate package * mysqlnd is anabled; so libmysqlclient is no longer
needed * Setting default-character-set in my.cnf may cause encoding problems *
Set date.timezone in php.ini * third party extensions need to be updated * There
are also new versions of the suhosin and apc extension make sure to review their
configuration as well PHP was split into the following packages: * php * php-
apache * php-cgi * php-curl * php-enchant * php-gd * php-gmp * php-intl * php-
ldap * php-mcrypt * php-odbc * php-pear * php-pgsql * php-pspell * php-snmp *
php-sqlite * php-tidy * php-xsl If you are using php on a webserver you either
need the cgi or apache sapi. The sqlite package includes the sqlite3 drivers;
the legacy sqlite2 drive is included in the php package itself.
