A week of symfony #472 (11-17 January 2016)

This week Symfony released four maintenance versions: 2.3.37, 2.6.13, 2.7.9 and 2.8.2. Besides the usual bug fixes, the main change introduced by these versions is the removal of our custom random number generator. Symfony now uses PHP's built-in random_bytes() and random_int() functions and the appropriate polyfill for those applications still using PHP 5.x.

Help the Symfony project!

As with any Open-Source project, contributing code or documentation is the most common way to help, but we also have a wide range of sponsoring opportunities.


I'm wondering why the 3.0 branch was left out in this batch of maintenance releases. Is there any issue blocking a 3.0.2 release or is there no release planned at the moment?
