[sflack-security]  php (SFSA:2007-127-01)

New php packages are available for Sflack 11.0, and -current
to improve the stability and security of PHP. Quite a few bugs were
fixed -- please see http://www.php.net for a detailed list.
All sites that use PHP are encouraged to upgrade. Please note that
we haven't tested all PHP applications for backwards compatibility
with this new upgrade, so you should have the old package on hand
just in case.

Here are the details from the Sflack 11.0 ChangeLog:
Upgraded to php-5.2.2.
This fixes bugs and improves security.
For more details, see:
(* Security fix *)
