Symfony 2.0.9 has been released earlier than expected to fix some annoying problems in 2.0.8:

  • it comes with Twig 1.5.1, which fixes a regression that made the form_theme tag fail;

  • it comes with a fix for the Filesystem class;

  • the composer.json file for 2.0.8 had the wrong version in it.

The CHANGELOG has all the details about the changes done in this release and you can also have a look at the full diff.

If you are starting a new project, you can get the Symfony Standard Edition distribution on the download page.

If you already have a project based on the Symfony Standard Edition 2.0.x, you can easily upgrade to 2.0.9 by getting the new deps and deps.lock files.

Then, run the vendors script:

$ ./bin/vendors install

And don't forget to clear your cache:

$ php ./app/console cache:clear

Remember that the Symfony2 Components are also available as standalone libraries. You can get them via their dedicated read-only repositories on Github ( for instance), install them via PEAR (pear install symfony2/Finder), or even install them via Composer.
