I don't know if any of you have seen the news, but 
one of the best security researchers, Stefan Esser, 
has quit the PHP Security Team.

While he'll still perform research and produce
advisories, he will no longer coordinate with the
PHP dev team. So this will mean that the PHP
Security Team will be playing catch-up, as Esser's
advisories will most likely not be coordinated with
the release of a patched PHP version.

His resignation apparently has at least something to
do with the disclosure practices and timeline, where the
vendor can stall security advisories by delaying product
