A week of symfony #249 (3->9 October 2011)

Symfony 2.0.4 version was released this week, maintaining the fast pace of Symfony2 upgrades. In addition, the independent security audit of Symfony2 and Twig code was disclosed. Lastly, an important, and backwards incompatible change, was committed to the Symfony2 master branch: locale management was moved from the Session class to the Request class (see details).

New plugins

Updated plugins

    • tests pass when the -aux and -aux2 buckets already exist
  • apostrophe:
    • workaround for potential XSS attack in page titles due to framework bug
    • made Apostrophe load-balancing and cloud-storage friendly
    • button slot no longer does last-minute str_replace on getEmbedCode, which is the old no-longer-supported DOS-friendly thing to do
    • existing video thumbnails are correctly accepted as a default for the file widget again
    • single-image slot no longer relies on the str_replace technique to generate media URLs
    • removed lots of error_log calls
    • new 'absolute' option to getScaledUrl allows absolute URLs to be retrieved
    • if an 'authorize' request is sent to getScaledUrl, return an array with just the URL for the image, rather than just returning true
    • added a context to the symfony cc task during the preCommand event rather than postCommand so that it benefits all postCommand handlers that need a context
    • made very sure we don't try to delete the original when a crop is removed
    • call getOriginalPath when rendering
    • use real routing to generate the local media URLs so that overrides of the routes work as expected
    • added options parameter and prependToRootRelative option to Minify_CSS_UriRewriter::prepend()
