SymfonyWorld Online 2021 Winter Edition December 9 – 10, 2021 100% Online 25 talks and 10 workshops

A week of symfony #232 (6->12 June 2011)

This week Symfony2 refactored and simplified cache warmers. Doctrine bridge was also heavily refactored and some classes were moved from the bundle to the bridge. Console component was made more powerful and Serializer component expanded its interface and simplified its internals. As usual, Form component showed a frantic development activity, including the removal of one feature not available for 2.0 launch.
