This week the Validator component fixed string conversion in constraint violations, DomCrawler improved filterXPath() support for ancestors and siblings and DependencyInjection fixed a self-reference that prevented the use of the garbage collector. In addition, Twig template engine fixed some edge cases for the "starts with" and "ends with" operators. Lastly, the first official discussion about Symfony 3.0 was initiated in the Symfony repository.
