symfony 1.2 Release Candidate 2 available!

I am happy to announce that we just published symfony 1.2 Release Candidate 2. The community response to our RC1 was better than expected, so we decided to make a quick RC2 release to ease some pain of bugs contained in RC1.

We will continue to resolve bugs targeted for 1.2. To get more bugs fixed, I would like to ask you not to put any new feature requests to trac with milestone 1.2. If you have any bugs, please supply us with instructions to reproduce, otherwise it is unlikely that we can resolve your issue still for 1.2

What is new

For all the projects now hopefully moving to symfony 1.2-RC2, I strongly recommend the What's new? tutorial. It contains the new and noteworthy stuff in 1.2. For all the projects already using RC1 this release brings nothing new, but still please follow the upgrade instructions at the end of this post.

Changes from symfony 1.2 RC 1

A typo Fabien did in the routing configuration for RC1 had quite nasty side effects, especially making routes named "_collection" generated by the admin generators fail. It also was generated into many places. I corrected all occurrences of this typo in symfony for RC2, but you might either from a tutorial or from generated code find this typo still in your routing.yml:

with_wilcard_routes:   true

replace it with

with_wildcard_routes:   true

More details can be found in ticket #5065. Please check your routing configuration as well.

I was also able to reduce the time consumed by the symfony command line. After upgrading, be sure to use the new symfony file from data/bin by copying it into your project. Details can be found in ticket #4928.

Even when the response times are not so fast as the 1.0 version of the CLI and certain systems (especially windows, which is poor in optimizing file access), we think that the amount of features the CLI has by now still justifies a tad slower response. We still try to further optimize it before 1.2 final.

Can you please elaborate on the 'nasty side effect' of misspelled with_wildcard_routes in routing.yml? Does it affect link generation especially of form_tag_for because I have been having issues with it.
typo link of ticket #4928
Fixed. And my name is Fabian, I am not Fabien *sigh*
I suppose I made a typo also :) unfortunately I don't have the luxury of an edit button :p
It's coming... :)
The CLI is really fast now! Thanks a lot.
Great work, thanks!
Regarding the 4928 CLI fix, shouldn't the data/bin/symfony version not also be generated in the project dir when running symfony generate:project?
Yes, but who does this when upgrading :-)
@Dennis: fixed, thanks,
