Upgrade your plugins

A problem in the symfony project PEAR channel made the plugin-install task always install the oldest version of the plugins, instead of the latest. If you recently installed plugins with the symfony command line, you probably installed an outdated version. Plugins installed via SVN are not affected.
The problem is now fixed. Fortunately, upgrading your plugins to get the latest version is quite simple. For each plugin, issue the following command:
> php symfony plugin-upgrade symfony/myPluginNamePlugin
To list the plugins installed through the command line, you can use:
> php symfony plugin-list
We apologize for the inconvenience, and advise every developer to check for the installed versions of the plugins installed with the command line. The PEAR channel problem explains the numerous tickets recently added about old plugin versions ; plugin developers should take a look at these tickets and close them if required.
I hope that won't prevent you from using symfony plugins. Last time I checked, there was more than 210 plugins waiting to do exactly what you need, from full ORM replacement to integration with Facebook. I'm personaly working on a plugin that makes babies sleep, but it's not really efficient yet. I'll let you know when I release it.
