Upgrade your plugins

A problem in the symfony project PEAR channel made the plugin-install task always install the oldest version of the plugins, instead of the latest. If you recently installed plugins with the symfony command line, you probably installed an outdated version. Plugins installed via SVN are not affected.

The problem is now fixed. Fortunately, upgrading your plugins to get the latest version is quite simple. For each plugin, issue the following command:

    > php symfony plugin-upgrade symfony/myPluginNamePlugin

To list the plugins installed through the command line, you can use:

    > php symfony plugin-list

We apologize for the inconvenience, and advise every developer to check for the installed versions of the plugins installed with the command line. The PEAR channel problem explains the numerous tickets recently added about old plugin versions ; plugin developers should take a look at these tickets and close them if required.

I hope that won't prevent you from using symfony plugins. Last time I checked, there was more than 210 plugins waiting to do exactly what you need, from full ORM replacement to integration with Facebook. I'm personaly working on a plugin that makes babies sleep, but it's not really efficient yet. I'll let you know when I release it.


i would like to see support/plugins for zend framework classes/features. For now there is only zend lucene
There used to be sfZendPlugin: http://trac.symfony-project.com/wiki/sfZendPlugin

But something is going wrong there it seems. Not sure what it is though.
I'll be needing the sleeping baby plugin in August, higher priority than symfony 1.1....;-)
Out of experience I can tell you that you won't need the baby sleep plugin after the implementation of symfony 1.2 (a year from now?), so don't spend too much time on it...
I can definitively use the baby sleep plugin! :)
I tried several baby plugins in the past and after 3 years and 10 months, I had a second baby.
Both the new baby and his sister slept the all night a week later.
I can tell I found the best baby plugin I have been looking for.
But it is not compatible with 1.1 (sorry for that).
