Symfony 2.3.0 RC1 released

The first release candidate for Symfony 2.3.0 is out. The most noticeable changes are the creation of the 2.3 branch and the switch from dev to RC in the Standard Edition composer.json file.

You can see the whole CHANGELOG online if you want to learn more about the few bugs that were fixed since beta2.

If everything goes fine, the final release should be out before the end of May, as planned in our release process.

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.


Thank you very much. Very promising. Updating ...
It's a shame that the symfony ICU component requires libicu 4.4 or newer - it means I can't use Symfony 2.3 on RHEL/CentOS 5.x (even with remi & epel).

Otherwise… yay!
Good news indeed! +1
Just opened an issue ( as I can't upgrade my project to 2.3.RC1 due to jms/di-extra-bundle requirements :(
FYI, if you're on CentOS/RHEL and using the remi PHP, you can roll your own Sf 2.3 compliant php-intl like this:

tar zxvf icu4c-4_8_1_1-src.tgz
cd icu/source
./runConfigureICU Linux --prefix=/usr/local
sudo make install

cd ..
tar jxvf php-5.4.15.tar.bz2
cd php-5.4.15/ext/intl
sudo cp ~/php-5.4.15/ext/intl/modules/ /usr/lib64/php/modules/

And then add an ini file like /etc/php.d/intl.ini that loads the extension.

WARNING: You'll have to update that extension manually whenever the PHP API version changes (e.g. moving to PHP 5.5?)
You people are doing magic. Thank you very much for all you're giving to PHP's world.
