Symfony Blog:
All symfony 1.x versions available on Github
October 26, 2011 @ 09:15:15

Fabien Potencier has made an announcement on the Symfony Blog today about all the availability of previous Symfony versions on github.

symfony1 is well and alive and many developers are now using it for projects hosted on Git. But as the official symfony 1 repository is hosted on Subversion, it's not always easy to get things versioned easily. As of today, this becomes much more easier. If you are using Git and symfony1, you can now use the official symfony1 Git clone.

There are branches for each of the major 1.x releases as well as tags for some of the minor releases. You can, of course, still access the latest packages directly via the symfony website.

Symfony Project:
Heading towards symfony 1.0
August 25, 2006 @ 08:23:29

The Symfony Project has posted an update on this blog about the progress they're making towards version 1.0 of their framework, including a detailed list of new additions.

If you watch the timeline, you probably noticed the important number of updates of these last days. If you opened a ticket, you also probably noticed that more than 160 tickets were fixed since 0.6.3. There are a lot of changes in symfony lately (see the changelog for the full list), and here is a brief overview of the important stuff.

Included in the list are things like:

  • Many-to-many relationships
  • New CLI tasks
  • AJAX actions have no layout by default
  • my* Classes
  • Validators

PHPKitchen:
PHP 5 Objects, Patterns, and Practice
January 09, 2006 @ 07:05:39

On PHPKitchen today, Demian Turner has posted a a few words about one of the latest PHP-related books he's read, "PHP5 Objects, Patterns, and Practice" from APress.

I recently read Matt Zandstra's PHP 5 Objects, Patterns, and Practice and thought I'd say a few good words about it for those who haven't been recommended yet. A lot of good PHP5 books have come out recently, eg something like PHP 5 Power Programming is an excellent resource for the finer points of charset issues, utf8 in PHP, timezone gotchas. But it's quite unusual in PHP circles for a book to come out that gives overall sound advice on application design.

I found Matt, who comes from a Java background, really hit the nail on the head, this book is an enjoyable read. While the first few chapters make allowances for readers who don't have a lot of exposure to OOP, the rest is quite a stimulating read, helped along in no small part by Matt's excellent unambiguous writing style.

He also mentions other topics that the book covers, things like the Composite pattern, Phing, PEAR, and the Reflection API.

Christian Stocker's Blog:
PHP 5, OS X, fink and iconv
January 06, 2006 @ 07:23:47

Christian Stocker has a quick new post with a solution for those Mac users out there that would like to use the iconv extension with fink.

If you want to get the iconv extension properly running with PHP 5 and fink on OS X, you need the following configure option

--with-iconv=/sw/

and then it should work.

Hope that helps others, too.

And, apparently, it does - given the one comment below it so far that has a positive response...
