symfony 1.0.0 beta 2 released

I've just released symfony 1.0.0 beta 2.

Major changes since beta 1:

  • Better compatibility with PHP 5.0.X
  • PEAR dependency has been removed
  • Better date support (thanks to chtito)
  • New COPYRIGHT file and licenses/ directory
  • All Propel and Creole classes are now under addon/
  • Phing is now bundled with symfony
  • has been updated to 1.7.0 beta2
  • And bug fixes and small enhancements

This release has more than 3400 unit and functional tests.

How to upgrade?

symfony 1.0.0 beta2 is completely compatible with beta1, so you don't need to launch the upgrade task if your project is already running on beta1.

To upgrade from Subversion, you will have to remove the lib/vendor/phing directory before executing svn up.

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.


Going very good ! Keep up the fast updates ! great job !
This is great. I haven't tried it yet, but hope to - with Doctrine perhaps - over the holiday period. Keep up the great work, and seasons greetings to the whole team.
I did have an issue with the order configuration files are read now. It appears the view.yml file is now read after the setTemplate call in the actions. In previous versions the view.yml was called on the initial action that was called. This isn't confirmed (I didn't look over the change logs in svn) but it's the best explanation to the problems I had after upgrading. See
How do I revert to beta1? I'm having some issues where beta2 is looking for files in the wrong directories (see my post on the forum).
OK, as forum readers will know, I've resolved the problem. See the forum for the rubber chicken swinging necessary for all to be well.
Thanks for your great work!
weep walking jonny, ops, team!

You are destroying!
Is it actually stable enough to run on a poduction environment ?
David, I wouldn't recommend for production just yet. Either use the old beta or the old stable - although the latter is very old now. Imagine the new stable is only a month or two away, so if you can wait, I'd recommend doing so.
