PHP 7.0 Enters Arch Linux Stable Repository
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.
