Symfony 0.6.1 released

A new stable version has just been released. We advise you to upgrade your symfony installation with the usual pear upgrade symfony/symfony command.

If you still use PEAR version 1.4.7, please also upgrade it to 1.4.8 since the symfony-project channel couldn't be detected in 1.4.7 due to a temporary bug in PEAR.

We keep on enhancing the framework and the documentation at a great pace (with an average of 6 commits a day since the 0.6.0). The new version corrects a few bugs and adds two very interesting features:

  • The dev environment (the one with the web debug toolbar on the top right of the window) is now much faster, because the configuration cache is not cleared at every request. Instead, symfony compares the dates of the configuration with the ones in cache, and recompiles only the ones that have changed. Note that in a few particular cases, this may cause strange behaviours in dev mode and force you to clear cache manually.
  • The other important addition is the admin generator. It has been greatly enhanced, and you are invited to read the book chapter that describes its syntax and... to try it. Really, after realizing what it can do, you will stick to symfony forever. Or so we hope.

Take a look at the changelog if you want the list of additions and corrections. And keep on spreading the word about symfony!

And about symfony's image, some members of the community expressed their will to change the framework tagline ("Professional web tools for lazy folks"). If you have an opinion on the matter, please head to the forum post where the discussion got started.

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.


I can vouch for the greatness of the admin generator. Loving it guys!
