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 08:26:11 EST
Hi, thanks for the report.  Note that the security problems have been fixed in
the PHP errata updates for 7.x already.

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 08:38:16 EST
Joe - that does not seem to be the case, that is why I reported the bug. 
Comment 5 Joe Orton 2003-02-05 08:41:53 EST
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 06:25:49 EDT
This was fixed in 8.0/9.
