New stuff in RHEL/Centos 5.6

With some delay I find out that RHEL 5.6 (and consequently Centos 5.6) will have:
  - bind 9.7 - improved DNSsec support
  - PHP 5.3 - support for namespaces
  - ebtables - Ethernet layer firewall
  - dropwatch - network stack packet analysis
  - IPA fonts - Japan JIS X 0213:2004 support
  - sssd - offline credential caching
All good and well, but the PHP upgrade will break a LOT of sites! I really didn't expect this.. I'll have to prepare my arse for a lot of messing around; also shall setup a PHP 5.2 repo for customers. :-(

No more php53 repo

As Centos 5.6 and Centos 6 will provide PHP 5.3 shortly, there is no need for my repo so I'm discontinuing that. If you need help migrating to the stock packages let me know.
I will be still packaging PHP 5.2 as there are still cases where this version is needed. For contact use rpm at

PHP 5.3 & Bind 9.7 in Centos Testing repo

Apparently we can now have PHP 5.3 and Bind 9.7 in Centos from the Centos-testing repo even though Centos 5.6 (nor 6.0 for that matter) is not yet released. Nice!
