Symfony News

1.2 stable released

Today we have finally tagged the last packages and with this the CMF has reached 1.2!
Unfortunately we ended up setting HHVM as an allowed failure in our test setup due to
an configuration issue on
Travis CI with HHVM 3.3, however things were working fine with 3.2 and we expect
once the configuration issue is resolved, things will work fine with 3.3 as well. All
packages however are now also tested against PHP 5.6, as well as Symfony 2.5 and the
upcoming 2.6.

In terms of features, as mentioned in a previous news item PHPCR ODM has seen
significant improvements related to the events system, the native translation support
and performance related to collections. Another big step forward is that we are now
also compatible with the recently released
SonataAdminBundle 2.3, which provides significant improvements especially on the
UI side. Furthermore, DoctrinePHPCRBundle now optionally supports the
PHPCR shell. Other than that most
Bundles have seen incremental improvements related to developer experience,
performance or minor feature additions.

Likely the biggest step forward for the CMF however is the first stable release of
RoutingAutoBundle and its underlying library. With it users can automate the
creation of routes. For example when a new content document is created, a route
document is automatically created. Or when a route is moved, a redirect from the
previous location is created as well. This makes it a lot easier to leverage the
ability of the CMF to keep the content and route structure separate, as it allows
a best of both worlds approach where most route related work is automated, but
it still is possible to easily manually manage the route structure independent
of the content structure.

As always we are also thrilled to see a steady increased in contributors providing
feedback, fixes and improvements small or large. In order to allow users to
quickly get a taste of what is possible, we have of course also updated our
demo to use the latest version of the sandbox. The
documentation has also
been updated to cover the new features.
