It has been an amazing month for the documentation: The Symfony 2.7 release came with lots of new features which had to be documented and there was a very active documentation hack day on May 23rd.
Documentation Hack Day¶
Thanks to everyone who joined us in the
#symfony-docs channel on freenode to help during the doc hackday! We had a great atmosphere, got a lot of work done and had time to brainstorm ways to improve the most important areas of the docs. In total, 34 new PRs were created and
37 other PRs were closed (some were taken over by other people and many others
were merged). A very big thanks to everyone joining us this day!
With the Symfony 3 release closing in, people started to become confused on how to prepare their code. This is why Wouter de Jong and Ryan Weaver wrote 2 small cookbook articles about Upgrading a Major Version and What do these "XXX is deprecated " E_USER_DEPRECATED Warnings mean?
Wouter also created an article explaining how to use Bower in your Symfony application. This is the first article in a new "Frontend" section of the cookbook. We hope to have more tips and tricks on how to use frontend tooling inside Symfony soon. If you have some ideas on what can be documented or if you can document something, we're happy to see the issues/pull requests!
The Framework config reference is completely restructured. It's now complete and many references and other details were added.
How you Can Help this Month¶
While Symfony 2.7 is already released, not all new features are documented yet. You can find the missing features in the 2.7 milestone of the issue tracker. Besides these, you can always go through the easy pick issues to find an issue that should be easy to fix.
If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment or ask for help in the
#symfony-docs channel on Freenode.
