"symfony 1.2 is not supported anymore"

symfony 1.4 is the current Long Term Support release that will get bugfixes for 3 years.

symfony 1.2 was released December 1st 2008 and now deserves its rest. It was a major milestone release for symfony bridging the gap between 1.0 and 1.4. Based on the community feedback we decided to prolong its support to ease transition. This transition period however is now over. symfony 1.2 will no longer receive updates from the core team, 1.2.11 is the last release of that branch. We will focus on driving Symfony 2 from now on, while still maintaining 1.3 and 1.4.

I would like to thank you for your feedback on "my" release and hope Kris will serve you well (ok, to be fair, I will still help him) on symfony 1.3 and 1.4.

And if you like it hacky and unstable like me, join my on the Symfony 2 alpha train ;-)

Yours sincerely,


former symfony 1.2 Release Manager


Thanks for this awesome work Fabian
Well... it was already expected.

About Symfony 2. Any ETA on a final release? What are the current scheduled plans? I was planning to use Symfony for a project that will end on the second half of 2010 that's why I'm asking if it would be a good idea to use 2.0 or not?
RIP 1.2 !
I start sf with 1.2, I'm on 1.4 and I'll use soon try Sf 2.0 !
*joins the alpha train* fuqq yeah! RIP 1.2! :)
Does symfony 2 comes with doctrine 2 in the final release? :D
will there be propel in sf2?
;_; I was in love with my 1.2, but now with 1.4 :) ....

Symfony 2 looks different O_o ... that Bundles (plugins?!!)?! Propel support?

I hope an easy migration from 1.4 to 2.0 can be possible :)
@Walter and you others asking about Propel support.

YES, there will be a Propel Plugin/bundle with the Symfony 2 release. This is what Fabien told us on SFLiVE2010
Many thanks to Fabian for being release manager of this release. You did a great job!
merci pour tous le monde
