As announced when we released it initially, the support for the 1.1 version of symfony comes to its end - targeted for the end of June 2009.
Nowadays, the only good reason to still use Symfony 1.1 is it's compatibility with PHP 5.1. So if you are using Symfony 1.1 and are running php 5.2.4+, we strongly advice you to upgrade your project to the latest 1.2 version of Symfony as soon as possible. The upgrade process is fully documented, and should be a no-brainer.
For those of you who can't upgrade the PHP version they use in production, e.g. those using and running the latest long-term support RHEL, you will be pleased to know that security-related patches will be applied during one more year to the 1.1 branch. So your existing project running Symfony 1.1 on PHP 5.1 are safe until June 2010.
