OPERATING SYSTEMS --
Arch Linux is now shipping PHP 7.0 via their stable repositories for those relying upon it for web servers or other purposes from an installation of this rolling-release distribution.

PHP 7 entered the stable repositories and these packages now use a package configuration closer to upstream PHP.net. Some of the nice changes to the Arch packages are no longer setting open_basedir by default and building the OpenSSL, Phar, and POSIX extensions by default. These Arch changes will also make it easier running the Phoronix Test Suite out-of-the-box on Arch.

More details on PHP 7 for Arch Linux stable via today's news announcement.
