A week of symfony #233 (13->19 June 2011)

This week Symfony 2.0 beta5 was published, marking the end of the beta period. Once more, the Form component was the most active, but lots of components were tweaked and improved, including Process, CssSelector, Yaml and Finder. Other important changes were a big performance improvement in ClassLoader and the refactorization of Session.
