New plugins

  • chCmsExposeRouting: allows you to easily expose all or part of application routes to the client side. On the client side, routes can be generated as simply as using url_for helper.
  • drResponseTitle: makes working with the response title a lot easier, by allowing multiple parts, a separator and a reverse order.
  • isicsHttpCache: translates some of the Symfony2 HTTP Cache concepts to symfony 1.x applications, including ESI support.
  • drGoogleUrlShortener: provides a Google URL Shortener API implementation and some nice shortcuts for getting a short URL for a given long URL or vice versa, and also for getting some statistics about the number of clicks, etc.
  • sfPropelORM: replaces symfony's core Propel plugin by the latest version of Propel, in branch 1.6.
