This week Symfony added a new PHPUnit Bridge which provides utilities for PHPUnit, especially user deprecation notices management. In addition, it committed some minor tweaks and optimizations to imrpove performance.
This week, Symfony development focused on implementing minor features and making some tweaks: made host matching case-insensitive, fixed handling of non-UTF8 strings in VarDumper, added support for passing more files to twig:lint command, refresh translation catalogues when a new translation file is added in a bundle, and added Twig loader priority. In addition, the first official Symfony conference of the year was announced: Symfony Live Paris 2015, which will take place from 9 to 10 of April.
This month, the Symfony documentation started preparing for Symfony 3.0, by removing the usage of deprecated features and documenting new features. Meanwhile, lots of minor fixes where merged into the documentation.

This week, Symfony added the possibility of defining multiple fallback locales and improved the Length validator to reject values which don't match the expected charset. Meanwhile, the DX initiative keeps improving Symfony with new proposals to throw exceptions with error messages visible to users and to simplify setting Twig options to format dates and numbers.
