Updating to PHP5.5.13.

Update information      Edit(Jun.9)

   They released PHP5.5.13 on May-28 19:57:18UTC. So, I updated my PHP from 5.5.12 to 5.5.13 on my Web server (Windows7HP+SP1(x86)).

   According to ChangeLog, this includes the fixes for CVE-2014-0237 and CVE-2014-0238. At this time, their Description is still ** RESERVED ** on the pages. CVE-2014-0237 is related to bug #67328 and CVE-2014-0238 is related to bug #67327.

   The php.ini-production has no change. As the official PHP binary includes php5apache2_4.dll, I extract the zip archive and replace all PHP5.5.12 files with all PHP5.5.13 files except my php.ini. Then, I restart my Apache. That’s it.

   If you need how to configure PHP5.5, please see the post. It is for a mbstrings user, but the information gives some help for you.

   By the way, they announced their fourth and final beta should show up on the 29th of May. But we cannot see it still now. Do they have something wrong to delay final beta release? When will PHP5.6 come?

   They released PHP 5.6.0beta4 on June 5 UTC. This is the final beta version. They say their first Release Candidate should show up on the 19th of June. I don’t know how many RC shows up, but PHP 5.6.0 general availability will come anytime soon.
