We've been pondering about whether to add some more specialized validators in the Symfony core, and because it does not hurt to have a few more built-in validators, Symfony 2.3 comes with some new ones: IBAN, ISBN, ISSN, and currency.

I don't have to say much more about them, so let me explain why I've been writing about small 2.3 additions until now:

  • I want to demonstrate that contributing to Symfony does not necessarily mean doing big things -- any Symfony developer is able to help the community at some point (as of today, 780 did for the code and 492 for the documentation);
  • I want to thank all contributors, and giving them some exposure and recognition on this blog is probably a good way -- if you have ever contributed, you are also listed on the Symfony hall of fame;
  • I want to make everyone realize that we are slowly but steadily moving from the big bang to a less crazy activity -- you can read more on this topic on my personal blog in case you missed it.

Next time I'm going to write about a very exiting 2.3 new feature... just to demonstrate that Symfony 2.3 is also really worth it. Until then, stay tuned!

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.


Nice to see that you have change your position about the isbn constraint
