Symfony 2.3.0 RC1 released
by Fabien Potencier – May 17, 2013 – 6 comments

The first release candidate for Symfony 2.3.0 is out. The most noticeable changes are the creation of the 2.3 branch and the switch from dev to RC in the Standard Edition composer.json file.

You can see the whole CHANGELOG online if you want to learn more about the few bugs that were fixed since beta2.

If everything goes fine, the final release should be out before the end of May, as planned in our release process.

    It's a shame that the symfony ICU component requires libicu 4.4 or newer - it means I can't use Symfony 2.3 on RHEL/CentOS 5.x (even with remi & epel).

    Otherwise… yay!

    Just opened an issue ( as I can't upgrade my project to 2.3.RC1 due to jms/di-extra-bundle requirements :(

    FYI, if you're on CentOS/RHEL and using the remi PHP, you can roll your own Sf 2.3 compliant php-intl like this:

    tar zxvf icu4c-4_8_1_1-src.tgz
    cd icu/source
    ./runConfigureICU Linux --prefix=/usr/local
    sudo make install

    cd ..
    tar jxvf php-5.4.15.tar.bz2
    cd php-5.4.15/ext/intl
    sudo cp ~/php-5.4.15/ext/intl/modules/ /usr/lib64/php/modules/

    And then add an ini file like /etc/php.d/intl.ini that loads the extension.

    WARNING: You'll have to update that extension manually whenever the PHP API version changes (e.g. moving to PHP 5.5?)
