Great News!
Doesn't seem to work well: [Symfony\Component\DependencyInjection\Exception\ServiceNotFoundException]
The service "knp_paginator.helper.processor" has a dependency on a non-existent service "templating.helper.router"
@Loic Works fine on my end. You could check to see where that service is declared in order to figure out why its dependencies won't resolve.
It's Ok by updating KnpPaginatorBundle to the last version.
Is 2.7 now recommended for new projects, even though it is still in beta?
Not yet, we have to wait for the 1st stable release.
