For those who use PHP < 5.3.9 (well, why I use this ancient PHP version for a project is a long story), I don't recommend upgrading to Symfony 2.5.3 as it crashes on all form validations. I opened this issue which is being resolved by @webmozart.

That was for the bad news. The good news which is not mentioned in the changelog is that there is now an app/console security:check command to check for reported package security vulnerabilities. Thanks for that!
THX, please update
