Symfony2 development focused this week on the new Form/Validation components. Firstly, the 'form' branch was merged, modifying nearly 300 files and 25,000 lines of code. Afterwards, tens of changes and tweaks were committed to make the forms more extendable and easier to use. In addition, Symfony2 PR12 was released and the first beta version was announced for the next week.
This week, the new Symfony2 forms were declared in beta state and functional tests added support for cookies and sessions. Meanwhile, Symfony2-based micro-framework Silex gained form and swiftmailer support and could even include a small admin generator. Lastly, symfony community started a campaign to ask NetBeans IDE to add support for Symfony2.
