  • r7888, r7889: [1.0, 1.1] removed wordwrap option when dumping YAML as it can cause some problems (closes #3083, #2514)
  • r7892: [1.1] replaced Spyc with a new YAML parser/dumper
    • removed Spyc
    • added sfYamlParser, sfYamlDumper (should be totally BC thanks to the unit tests)
    • the parser and the dumper are much more robust and much more easier to fix
    • exceptions are thrown when a non valid YAML file is parsed (when you forget a : after a key for example, or if the indentation is not right ;))
    • fixed a bunch of bugs of the old parser
    • speed is more or less the same as Spyc
    • added an option to control the dump to switch from the block to the flow notation (propel:build-schema is now much more readable in YAML)
    • added more unit tests

Some new symfony powered websites

They talked about us

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.


We&#039;re really blessed with all these new plugins.

oooh that new sfDynamicCMSPlugin has got me all excited!

Is there any plan to merge this with the sfSimpleCMS? they seem very similar, shame to repeat it all.

Can&#039;t wait for sfExtjsThemePlugin to be mature, it&#039;s going to be ace.
