After updating it broke my php on IIS ("C:\PHP\7.2\php-cgi.exe - The FastCGI process exited unexpectedly")
Anyone with the same issue?

Reverting to 4.1.7 fixes it. I tried with cache clear, iis restart... but nothing
It's weird because php doesn't even write anything to the error log
..The first time after the update I get this error:

Exception thrown when handling an exception (ErrorException: Notice: Undefined property: Symfony\Component\Stopwatch\StopwatchPeriod::$isFinder)

Notice: Undefined property: Symfony\Component\Stopwatch\StopwatchPeriod::$isFinder
@Francesco please submit issue(s) if you can provide more information to reproduce them.
On php version 7.1.22 everything works fine, but on 7.2.12 connection lost ERR_CONNECTION_RESET
on 7.2.12 with Xdebug all work
AWS EB ami 2.8.3 with php 7.2.11 connection lost.
httpd error log:
[core:notice] [pid 23349] AH00052: child pid 29513 exit signal Segmentation fault (11)
[ERROR] The process has been signaled with signal "11".

Steps to reproduce :

1 : composer create-project symfony/website-skeleton my_project
2 : php bin/console server:run

I think it has a relationship with Annotation @Route.....
After upgrade my nginx starts showing Bad Gateway 502. Roll back to 4.1.7 helps.
[ERROR] The process has been signaled with signal "11".
[ERROR] The process has been signaled with signal "11". After downgrading back to 4.1.6 problem still remains. Before 4.1.8 everything was working fine...
We're sorry for the "signal 11 error". Here you can find more details about this issue:

It's been fixed in and it will be included in the next stable release.
Upgrading 4.1.8 breaks simple code that was working since few months.

$organisation->setAddress(new Address());

Before 4.1.8 : No issues

4.1.8 : I'm not able to persist $organisation because address_id is null
Forget my last comment (or delete it with this one). My issues are related to doctrine and not Symfony !
I too had the same kind of error.
Notice: Undefined property: Symfony\Component\Stopwatch\StopwatchPeriod::$isFinder

It came, when I updated symfony project. When I delete the cache, the application will run without problem, on second request the bug again appear. So I believe the application is not properly able to write cache files or similar.

As @Francesco Montanari mentioned. The issue gone, when I switched back to symfony 4.1.7.

Thank you
With the latest (4.1.8) skeleton project I have the
Notice: Undefined property: Symfony\Component\Stopwatch\StopwatchPeriod::$isFinder
error. If I downgrade to the 4.1.7 or 4.1.6 I have the
[Thu Nov 29 22:14:49.420261 2018] [core:notice] [pid 10981] AH00052: child pid 11852 exit signal Segmentation fault (11)
I deleted the whole cache by hand...

What is goin' on? :(
Ok guys. I did some research, and I discovered that the problem is w/ the Apache PHP module. The latest on Debian GNU/Linux 9.6 (stretch) is PHP Version 7.2.12-1+0~20181112102304.11+stretch~1.gbp55f215 by

After I downgrade it to PHP Version 7.1.24-1+0~20181112093455.10+stretch~1.gbp09a4fd everything works fine and on Symfony 4.1.8

I'm sorry. I do not know what is the real problem, but this temporarily solves it.
I have the same SegFault error when I open the Profiler.
Debian 9.6 / PHP 7.1.24 / Symfony 4.1.8.

No issue before upgrading to 4.1.8.
FYI, switching to php7.1-fpm fix the issue.
