New in Symfony 2.3: New validators
We've been pondering about whether to add some more specialized validators in the Symfony core, and because it does not hurt to have a few more built-in validators, Symfony 2.3 comes with some new ones: IBAN, ISBN, ISSN, and currency.
I don't have to say much more about them, so let me explain why I've been writing about small 2.3 additions until now:
- I want to demonstrate that contributing to Symfony does not necessarily mean doing big things -- any Symfony developer is able to help the community at some point (as of today, 780 did for the code and 492 for the documentation);
- I want to thank all contributors, and giving them some exposure and recognition on this blog is probably a good way -- if you have ever contributed, you are also listed on the Symfony hall of fame;
- I want to make everyone realize that we are slowly but steadily moving from the big bang to a less crazy activity -- you can read more on this topic on my personal blog in case you missed it.
Next time I'm going to write about a very exiting 2.3 new feature... just to demonstrate that Symfony 2.3 is also really worth it. Until then, stay tuned!
