Yes, some distros, especially server-targeted ones, are really slow
with their package updates. However, usually there are external
repositories which offer newer versions of packages. I use the
following repository for CentOS, I guess there might be similar
repos for LTS as well:
I'm wondering why the most important thing about this is not
mentioned. Which versions of PHP are used/installed on major
linux distributions. For example I have an ubuntu server with
10.04 LTS with PHP 5.3. So when PHP 5.3 is requiered that's okay
for me. When starting to requier PHP 5.4 then I would have to
make a dist update an so on. And when PHP 5.4 breaks any
compatibilities an maybe older PHP-Script won't work I would
even have to set up a second server. I think this could be the
best way to stop a lot of users use SMW.
I do not decide anyway. Sorry for these posts. I'll be silent.
