Congratulations! Symfony just reached 500 million downloads!
Coming to the US: Fabien and SensioLabs have landed in the USA! But what does that mean for Symfony? More evangelization and support on this side of the ocean and beyond!
We're on the verge of achieving an incredible milestone: 500 million Symfony packages downloaded by the PHP community. Let's celebrate it together!
In Symfony 3.2 we improved the Filesystem component to add two new functions: readlink(), to normalize the behavior of PHP on different operating systems, and hardlink() to create single or multiple hard links to files.
Symfony 3.2 will introduce some minor YAML deprecations in order to make the Yaml component fully compliant with the YAML specification: white spaces are required after mapping keys and duplicated keys are no longer allowed.
Symfony 3.2 has improved the behavior of private services to always work as you expect and prevent them from being accessible via the service container.
In Symfony 3.2, the routing component has been improved to add support for UTF-8 characters and PCRE Unicode properties as part of the route paths and requirements.
