1.207. php

Updated php packages that fix several bugs and add various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
PHP is an HTML-embedded scripting language commonly used with the Apache HTTP Server. It offers developers a built-in database integration and a solution to write dynamically generated web pages.
The php packages have been upgraded to upstream version 5.3.3, which provides a number of bug fixes and adds multiple enhancements over the previous version. It also introduces one backwards-incompatible language change in that only a function named "__construct" is now treated as a constructor in a namespaced class. This change has no effect on non-namespaced classes. (BZ#645591)

Bug Fix

Previously, the check to prevent the "extract()" function overwriting the "$GLOBALS" variable was not working properly when using the default "EXTR_OVERWRITE" mode. The fix for this bug has been provided so that the check works as expected now.
Users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues and add these enhancements.
