This week, symfony 1.1 beta 2 was released, freezing the API of new features and finishing most of the internal refactoring. A new symfony sprint was announced and a tentative symfony 1.1 release date was disclosed (in about 4-8 weeks). Meanwhile, plugins maintain their frenetic activity and continue updating their code for symfony 1.1.
Symfony 1.1 polishing continues with dozens of tweaks and fixes during this week. Plugins maintain their great development activity with more than 20 updated plugins. Symfony 1.0 development achieves 1.0.12 milestone.
Symfony 1.1 maintains its strong development activity for another week. More than 130 changesets have been committed, including a new cache:clear task and a new YAML parser/dumper that replaces Spyc. Nearly 50 bugs have been closed and more than 20 plugins have been updated.
Development of symfony 1.1 continues at fast pace. This week, helpers have been moved back in lib/ directory as they won't be converted to classes for symfony 1.1. Moreover, the way sfViewCacheManager deals with internal cache keys has been improved.
Development activity during this week has been colossal. Hundreds of source code archives have been modified and the new configuration system has been introduced as the last major change of symfony 1.1. Definitive countdown to symfony 1.1 has just begun.
