This week, Symfony2 development focused on Form and Filesystem components. In addition, the Security component was updated to allow class names to be passed as an argument to getEncoder() method.
Symfony Live Conference Paris wrap-up.
At Symfony Live 2011 - Paris, we announced the plan to build a content management framework on top of Symfony2. Meanwhile, the Symfony2 CMF has reached a usable state.
This week, two new versions were released: Symfony 2.0.15, including minor fixes and tweaks, and symfony 1.0.14, a security release that address a security vulnerability. In addition, this week started the integration of Symfony2 components into the core of Drupal 8.
Last year at Symfony Live, we had an uncon for one of the two conference days. It was a big success, with a nice mixture of talks on a variation of topics. We had established speakers in the uncon schedule, but also new speakers. And we even hosted a nice discussion on E-commerce using symfony. Because of the success we had with the unconference last year, we've decided to extend the unconference to include both conference days! This means more room for those of you who want to present on your favorite topic. And those presentations can be done as either regular talks or as lightning talks. There will be 9 slots to fill spread out over the two days.
