A week of symfony #289 (9->15 July 2012)

This week Symfony project experienced the most intense development activity in years. In addition to the three new versions released (2.0.16, 2.1.0 beta2, and 2.1.0 beta3), a major cleanup of tickets and pull requests was made on the official repository. Particularly noteworthy was the refactoring of the form component and its huge performance boost.
