Symfony 2.0.8 released

Warning: Symfony 2.0 is no longer supported. Consider upgrading your applications to the most recent Symfony version.

Symfony 2.0.8 has just been released.

The CHANGELOG has all the details about the changes done in this release and you can also have a look at the full diff.

If you are starting a new project, you can get the Symfony Standard Edition distribution on the download page.

If you already have a project based on the Symfony Standard Edition 2.0.x, you can easily upgrade to 2.0.8 by getting the new deps and deps.lock files.

Then, run the vendors script:

$ ./bin/vendors install

And don't forget to clear your cache:

$ php ./app/console cache:clear

Remember that the Symfony2 Components are also available as standalone libraries. You can get them via their dedicated read-only repositories on Github ( for instance), install them via PEAR (pear install symfony2/Finder), or even install them via Composer.

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.


Wow, I'm tired of updating my project :)
Great !
No holidays for Symfony devs? :-)
Nice Christmas present. Thank you.
Awesome hollydays present. Can't wait to open it :')
Nice. Sure it won't break anything?
If anyone is getting "Fatal error: Class 'Metadata\Driver\LazyLoadingDriver' not found".
Then switch metadata to 1.1.0
More info:
I just wanted to note that if any of the deps and deps.lock projects apart from Symfony are also updated that should be said somewhere. Doctrine just got silently updated to 2.1.5 with a fix for a bug that we were solving with a workaround, with the update, everything just broke. Thanks!!
Usefull for checking if standard-edition files are also changed:
@Albert Casademont: Nothing is updated silently. The blog post gives you a link to the full diff and for every new release, we update the minor releases for all dependencies.
All I get is this :(
Fatal error: Call to undefined method Symfony\Bundle\FrameworkBundle\Templating\TemplateReference::getTemplate() in /var/www/tyler/ on line 62
Wow, can't delete your own comments. That's not cool...
@Fabien Potencier: sorry if my comment sounded rude, it was not my intention, i can't be anything but greateful for all the work being done here. I know about the full diff and i read throught it carefully checking things, but i guess it would be nice to also mention those minor updates in the blog post so we can check with each project the diff between versions
Thanks for this new update. Good christmas present :) See ya
Thanks for the update! I'm very grateful for all of the continued support.
