A week of symfony #30 (23->29 July 2007)

Symfony development steadily progresses towards 1.1 version and prepares for major refactoring during following weeks. Plugins list adds up 108 plugins, with 3 more plugins released this week. Symfony's marketplace grows with new job offers and devolpers for hire all around the world.

This week we've also known that symfony 1.1 will feature a new polished and revamped CLI. Although all the old tasks will work as in symfony 1.0, the new tasks will be bundled in namespaces (for example propel:build-all, propel:insert-sql, i18n:find), will use more meaningful names (for example log:clear, generate:module, generate:controller) and will output useful and complete information about their use.
