New in Symfony 2.7: Advanced table layouts for console commands

The Symfony Console component is the second most popular Symfony component, with more than eight million downloads on Packagist.org so far.

A week of symfony #430 (23-29 March 2015)

This week, Symfony officially introduced its new installer. In addition, the String security utils were refactored and some nice performance improvements were applied to DomCrawler component and to the PHP container dumper.

Throughout subsequent versions of Symfony, we leveraged Composer and pushed it to its limits. Having done so, it's time to introduce a new way to install Symfony: the Symfony Installer.
