Updated the version of the PHP Agent to be the latest stable release.

Version 9.4 added support for PHP 7.4, and at the moment New Relic is in those images. So now it will actually work.

Had to also downgrade Xdebug to 2.6.0 on the PHP 7.0 images so that they would actually build.

It is strongly recommended that users use an explicit version number in their pecl install invocations to ensure proper PHP version compatibility (PECL does not check the PHP version compatiblity when choosing a version of the extension to install, but does when trying to install it).

For example, memcached-2.2.0 has no PHP version constraints (, but memcached-3.1.4 requires PHP 7.0.0 or newer ( When doing pecl install memcached (no specific version) on PHP 5.6, PECL will try to install the latest release and fail.

Beyond the compatibility issue, it's also a good practice to ensure you know when your dependencies receive updates and can control those updates directly.

.. so I guess we should be pinning all the pecl packages?
