A week of symfony

A week of symfony #475 (01-07 February 2016)

This week Symfony focused on fixing minor bugs and implementing some tweaks. The Yaml dump() method gained support for adding flags to tweak its output. In addition, we removed readline support from the Console component because it didn't work flawlessly. Meanwhile, the Symfony backlog cleaning process continued with more than 40 issues closed and 25 pull requests merged.

A week of symfony #474 (25-31 January 2016)

This week, Symfony's development activity increased significantly, with more than 60 pull requests merged and 90 issues closed. Countless fixes and tweaks were added across all components, including: added the new HTTP 451 status code, fixed template location for PHP templates, added HTTP status code in the Ajax panel of the debug toolbar, added a data: URI normalizer in Serializer and used PHP 5.5 generators in the Cache component.

A week of symfony #473 (18-24 January 2016)

Meanwhile, a lot of fixes and improvements were added, such as a DateTime normalizer for the Serializer component, test optimizations, web profiler tweaks, support for generating absolute URLs in CLI, etc. In addition, the first details of the SymfonyLive Paris 2016 conference were unveiled.

A week of symfony #472 (11-17 January 2016)

This week Symfony released four maintenance versions: 2.3.37, 2.6.13, 2.7.9 and 2.8.2. Besides the usual bug fixes, the main change introduced by these versions is the removal of our custom random number generator. Symfony now uses PHP's built-in random_bytes() and random_int() functions and the appropriate polyfill for those applications still using PHP 5.x.
