Feel free to post any questions about PHP Minor Version Update for August 2019 on the MSDN Forum.
1 - Both PHP v5.6 and v7.0 are past End-Of-Life, and are no longer receiving security updates from the community. However, to ensure our customers have the most secure PHP builds available, we have arranged to have relevant security fixes from supported versions of PHP backported to PHP v5.6 and v7.0.
Edit: Due to an issue with the Zend Opcache extension in PHP 7.2.19, we will move to 7.2.20 for this update.
