RC6 was GOLD, so version 7.2.0 GA is just released, at planed date.
A great thanks to all developers who have contributed to this new major and long awaiting version of PHP and thanks to all testers of the RC versions who have allowed us to deliver a good quality version.
This version is really special and very important for me, as I had the luck to be chosen as Release Manager with Sara Golemon.
RPM are available in the remi-php72 repository for Fedora ≥ 25 and Enterprise Linux ≥ 6 (RHEL, CentOS) and as Software Collection in the remi-safe repository.
Read the PHP 7.2.0 Release Announcement.
Replacement of default PHP by version 7.2 installation (simplest):
yum-config-manager --enable remi-php72 yum update php*
Parallel installation of version 7.2 as Software Collection (x86_64 only, recommended for tests):
yum install php72
To be noticed :
- EL7 rpm are build using RHEL-7.4
- EL6 rpm are build using RHEL-6.9
- this version will be the default version in Fedora 28, see PHP 7.2
- all extensions are already available, see the PECL extension RPM status page
