A week of symfony #193 (6->12 September 2010)

Annotations shined this week: Symfony2 routing component added an annotation loader, a new experimental FrameworkExtraBundle was released to support annotations for controllers and development mailing-list hosted a discussion about defining services with annotations. Unfortunately, this week we also found out that Symfony2 will probably delay its launch date until the next Symfony Live Conference (3-5 March 2011).
