It tooks more time than expected, but the second beta version of Symfony2 is now available.

60 developers have made more than 600 commits since beta1, and I'm just talking about Symfony "core". And what about the docs? It's also really impressive: 35 people helped enhancing the documentation with about 250 commits.

That is huge! Thanks to everyone who contributed to this release in one way or another.

I won't list all the changes in this post, but I will highlight the work that has been done on the documentation recently.

The cookbook has also been updated with quite a few new recipes:

As always, don't forget to read the UPDATE file to know how to upgrade to beta2.
