Great release, thanks to everybody involved.

We've been using the beta for a few weeks now and the new DX initiatives combined with the JMSDiExtraBundle are really speeding up our development process.
Awesome! I've tried to install it and it seems the AppBundle doesn't included in v2.6.0 in src/ folder. I think PR need to be included to tag 2.6.0.
Thank you for this release. Awesome!
Thanks . It looks awesome
Nice! Thanks for this release!
Bonjour, j'aimerais télécharger la documentation en PDF de la 2.6 pour une consultation "hors ligne" mais les liens vers les pdf ne pointent visiblement sur rien... merci.
Thank you! This is great!!! :D Looking forward for Symfony 3.0 release.
Big props to everyone! Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the new release!

I can not download pdf documentation for 2.6

Best regards,
That's awesome! Thanks to everybody involved!!

Nous essayons de télécharger la version 2.6.0 via composer mais rencontrons des erreurs de runtime. Est-ce normal si la version définie dans le composer.json est une version DEV ?

Merci pour votre éclairage.

I'm getting an error when trying to install Symfony 2.6 via "composer create-project symfony/framework-standard-edition /var/www/alexgemmell/server-new/". The error says:

Failed to download symfony/symfony from source: The process "git clone --no-checkout 'git://' '/var/www/alexgemmell/server-new/vendor/symfony/symfony' && cd '/var/www/alexgemmell/server-new/vendor/symfony/symfony' && git remote add composer 'git://' && git fetch composer" exceeded the timeout of 300 seconds.
Now trying to download from dist
- Installing symfony/symfony (2.6.x-dev 7a5762c)
Could not delete /var/www/alexgemmell/server-new/vendor/symfony/symfony/.git/objects/pack/.nfs000000000096e14a000

See screenshot:

Anyone know what this is?
Good news, the debug component seems very promising.
I noticed that the `security.role_hierarchy` service isn't available anymore, or at least not being shown in `app/console container:debug`. Was this changed in 2.6 or was that earlier?
