Thank you for the support!

Dotdeb is a one-man project that is providing up-to-date PHP packages for more than 14 years now, and I’m very proud and grateful for the community that gathered around it.

Anouncement: PHP 7.++ & Dotdeb | Dotdeb

Packages for php 7.++ on jessie, stretch or testing can come from sury.
The good: Also rasbian likes the armhf packages so that the pi will run brand new PHP versions 🙂

If you want to install PHP 7++ on your machine or just seamlessly upgrade it, you should definitely take a look at That’s where Ondřej Surý publishes PHP packages for the debian os
