Also there is a serious security problem in that version of PHP:

I would say this is a critical update.

Comment 2 Joe Orton 2003-01-27 13:26:11 UTC
Hi, thanks for the report.  Note that the security problems have been fixed in
the PHP errata updates for 7.x already.

Comment 3 Dax Kelson 2003-02-05 08:58:17 UTC
Here is a serious bug that is biting lots of people:

Simple test case:

$ php -q 'exit(99);' ; echo $?

This should display 99 on your screen, instead I get 255.

Comment 4 S BEAM 2003-02-05 13:38:16 UTC
Joe - that does not seem to be the case, that is why I reported the bug.

Comment 5 Joe Orton 2003-02-05 13:41:53 UTC
Yes, the version of the RPM is still "4.1.2" since we back-ported the fixes from
4.2.x and apply them to 4.1.2.

Comment 6 Joe Orton 2004-05-11 10:25:49 UTC
This was fixed in 8.0/9.
