  • New plugins
    • sfPropelAlternativeSchemaPlugin: this plugin extends the symfony model generator, based on Propel, to allow a schema to override another one. It also provides a new YAML syntax for defining database schemas, more explicit and more readable.
    • sfPHPUnitPlugin: integrates PHPUnit in symfony applicactions. The main motivation for this plugin was to introduce Selenium testing into symfony, so that you could fully test AJAX'ed sites from the command line.
    • sfExtjsThemePlugin: extends the power of the generator and adds the Extjs AJAX library to a symfony project, while remaining compatible to the default symfony-theme. It allows you to use the power of the Extjs library for the admin generated modules by simply defining this theme in your generator.yml file.
    • sfPropelMigrationsLightPlugin: easily change the database structure without losing any data.
    • sfPaymentPayboxPlugin: this plugin is designed to connect to the french Paybox payment gateway in order to process credit cards.
    • sfJqueryPlugin: offers helpers that integrate the Jquery Javascript framework (this plugin is in Alpha state)
    • sfFaqPlugin: allows you to embed a FAQ module within your symfony application with lots of features
    • sfYzAjaxValidationPlugin: provides validation by using AJAX to access Symfony's native validation code and updating it to the client side
  • Updated plugins
    • sfPropel13Plugin: bugfix when generating CRUD/adming (was reading PDO type, instead of Propel type), removed autoload.yml, added license, readme, package.xml, released 0.6.0 version

    • sfPropelActAsCommentableBehaviorPlugin: fixed bad index name, removed unnecessary schema parameters, added namespaces (behavior + tests + module + validation), fixed link in documentation, update package.xml, released 0.3 version, make module more extensible, added limit option
    • sfLucenePlugin: added custom analyzer and case sensitivity support, made documentation more clear with custom partials, added/fixed encoding support in indexers, released version 0.0.8 (alpha), improved indexing error messages (regarding non-scalar resource types)
    • sfPropelActAsTaggableBehaviorPlugin: removed model generated classes, updated package.xml, added an optionnal array parameter to the "getTags()" method + updated tests
    • sfDoctrinePlugin: added default record listener, fixes for new sfDoctrinePlugin, added code so that propel style accessors are generated, fix so Table classes are generated
    • sfSimpleForumPlugin: fixed empty forums not being displayed in Forum list (closes #2330), fixed package file and released 0.6.4 Beta (closes #2336)

    • sfSslRequirementPlugin: redirect does not end execution of the request
    • sfThumbnailPlugin: toString($mime) method now works for both adapters, loadFile() method can now accept a URI if sfWebBrowserPluging is available, implemented "method" option for sfImageMagickAdapter where "method" for now can be "shave_all" or "shave_bottom"

Help the Symfony project!

As with any Open-Source project, contributing code or documentation is the most common way to help, but we also have a wide range of sponsoring opportunities.


Symfony is teaching me something new everyday.

You guys deserve a round of applause :)
