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.


when in may, looking at the roadmap, will 3.1 be released?
And some other questions:
I red on an other page that not all bundles are ready for 3? We have a self written framework at the moment, we're going to set up an new architecture, and considering building from scratch with an existing framework as symfony or laravel. I've worked with symfony before and i think it's the best choice at the moment.
- Is it best practice to set up all new from 3 (or 3.1 when its out soon)? or is it safer to set it up in 2.8 and upgrade to 3 later on?
- At the moment in our self written framework we use requerejs, but i used to use assetic in symfony2 before for the js. I see that from 2.8 its not included anymore, while you can still add it.
- What is the reason for that?
- Is it better to use requirejs now instead of assetic?
- If so, what to do with the css and other assets?
- Or is it better to use requirejs for js and assetic for the rest of the assets?
i now see that the FOSUserBundle isn't ready for 3?

* Symfony versions are usually published on the last day of the month.
* Assetic is not included by default, but it's still compatible and you can easily add it.
* The reason to remove it is that some people think that it's better to manage assets with JavaScript instead of PHP.
* Some of us don't agree with that and we're still happily using Assetic, despite its quirks.
* In your scenario, it's better to start with Symfony 2.8, where all bundles are compatible. Then, when all bundles are ready, upgrading to 3.0 will be painless.
@Bart I've been using FOSUserBundle with Symfony 3.04 and now 3.0.5 without any problems thus far. In my experience, may bundles have their dev-master versions Symfony 3 compatible and none that I have tested have brought major issues. I think its safe to use most of the dev-master in production which gives you upto date features and fixes - this applies to may libraries not just bundles because the wait time between stable releases is normally very long.

About Assetic, I was among those disappointed to see it removed from the full stack but as @Javier pointed out you can still install it easily with composer.
I have a special chars in my console when I use Symfony 3.0.5, no problem with 3.0.4
