PHP CGI configuration fundamentally changed

Release Notes for Ubuntu
php5 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

This discussion is ongoing in Debian, and the fixes have not even landed, but I wanted to make sure this does not get forgotten.

Basically quantal has a changed mime-types package that will affect some PHP users. The proposed release note that will be included in Debian wheezy should probably also be quoted in Quantal's release notes.

Default PHP extension configuration

The mime-types package has dropped non-standard definitions of
PHP MIME-Types as a security measure. Default PHP configuration
for libapache2-mod-php5{filter} and php5-cgi now only serve files
which have .php, .php[345] and .phtml extensions on a most right
place as opposed to previous state where <filename>.php.foobar
would have been interpreted. Please read NEWS file in the PHP
SAPI of your choice for further information.

This bug was fixed in the package php5 - 5.4.6-1ubuntu1

php5 (5.4.6-1ubuntu1) quantal; urgency=low

  * Merge from Debian experimental (LP: #1006738 , LP: #1040212)
    Remaining changes:
    - d/rules: Simplify apache config settings since we never build
      interbase or firebird.
    - debian/rules: export DEB_HOST_MULTIARCH properly.
    - Add build-dependency on lemon, which we now need.
    - Dropped firebird2.1-dev, libc-client-dev, libmcrypt-dev as it is
      in universe.
    - Dropped libcurl-dev not in the archive.
    - debian/control: replace build-depends on mysql-server with
      mysql-server-core-5.5 and mysql-client-5.5 to avoid upstart and
      mysql-server-5.5 postinst confusion with starting up multiple
      mysqlds listening on the same port.
    - Dropped php5-imap, php5-interbase, php5-mcrypt since we have
      versions already in universe.
    - Dropped libonig-dev and libqgdbm since its in universe. (libonig
      MIR has been declined due to an inactive upstream. So this is
      probably a permanent change).
    - modulelist: Drop imap, interbase, sybase, and mcrypt.
    - debian/rules:
      - Dropped building of mcrypt, imap, and interbase.
      - Install apport hook for php5.
      - stop mysql instance on clean just in case we failed in tests
    - debian/control, debian/rules: Re-enable libedit-dev.
  * Dropped Changes:
    - debian/rules: change memory limits on example .ini files.
