On the Symfony blog today the official announcement Symfony fans have been waiting for has been made - the first official version of Symfony 2.0 has been released.
After 12 preview releases, 5 beta versions, and 6 release candidates, I'm very proud to announce the immediate availability of Symfony 2.0, final version. Since the first preview release, published 18 months ago during the Symfony Live conference, the Symfony community has done an amazing work. The Symfony2 code quality would not have been the same without their outstanding work. Thank you!
Fabien takes a little time to thank the community that's backed the project and has contributed their own time and efforts to making it a success. He also talks about the code itself mentioning its emphasis on standards, its efforts to be as decoupled as possible and some of the innovations they've brought to the world of frameworks. You can grab this latest release here and can learn all about this new version through the Quick Start tutorial.
