PHP 5.6.34, 7.0.28 and 7.1.15; Perl 5.20 (completed)

Update 4:30 PM Pacific time March 25: The changes described below have been deployed on all servers.

The PHP developers recently released versions 5.6.34, 7.0.28 and 7.1.15 that fix several bugs. Over the next couple of days, we’ll be upgrading the PHP 5.6, 7.0 and 7.1 series on our servers as a result.

In addition, we’ll be upgrading the less-commonly used Perl scripting language from version 5.14 to 5.20 at the same time. (These need to be updated simultaneously because of shared “dependencies” on certain software libraries.)

These changes should not be noticeable, but as always, don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any trouble.
