Packages of the new major version of PHP have been released into the stable
repositories. Besides the new [PHP 7 features][1] there are the following
packaging changes. In general the package configuration is now closer to what
was intended by the PHP project. Also refer to the **[PHP 7 migration
guide][2]** for upstream improvements.

#### Removed packages

  * **php-pear**

  * **php-mssql**

  * **php-ldap** The module is now included in the [php][3] package

  * **php-mongo** The new **[php-mongodb][4]** might provide an alternative even
though it is not a compatible drop-in replacement

  * **php-xcache** Consider using the included [OPcache][5] and optionally
[APCu][6] for user data cache

  * **[graphviz][7]** The PHP bindings had to be removed

#### New packages

  * **[php-apcu-bc][8]** Install and enable this module if the **apc_***
functions are needed

  * **[php-mongodb][4]**

#### Configuration changes

  * **open_basedir** is no longer set by default

  * **openssl**, **phar** and **posix** extensions are now built in

  * [php-fpm][9] does no longer provide a **logrotate** configuration. Instead
syslog/journald is used by default

  * [php-fpm][9]'s service file does no longer set **PrivateTmp=true**

  * The configuration and module of [php-apache][10] have been renamed to
**php7_module.conf** and **libphp7.so**
