install php70-gd on ubuntu

Recently the new php7 has been released. However, when I am trying to install the gd package, the library can not be found.

I have tried through

sudo apt-get install php70-gd


sudo apt-get install php70-php-gd

Does anybody has an idea if gd is available for php 7?


PHP7 packages for Ubuntu including php7.0-gd can be installed via PPA for PHP by Ondřej Surý:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/php
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install php7.0-gd


As MacroMan stated, under Ubuntu 16.04 you don't need to add the repository any more. Simply issuing sudo apt-get install php7.0-gd works.
