I'm happy to say that the next release of Symphony is now available as a Release Candidate. Symphony 2.5 enhances Associations, enforces PSR-2 code formatting and introduces semver for versioning. If there are no major bugs found during testing, this package will be released as is on August 31st as Symphony 2.5.

The release notes detail all the fixes for this release, but here's a snapshot of the newer goodies:

  • #2158 - Add new delegate, ModifyFieldPublishWidget.
  • #2108 - Implement Redirect on Forbidden, Redirect on Required functionality.
  • Add XMLElement::validateChild method
  • Add CACHE constant to Provider interface
  • Add wildcard to support Provider's DS/Events with custom URL parameters
  • Add Field::prepareReadableValue, Field::prepareTextValue and Field::createAssociationsDrawerXMLElement
  • Add symphonyAffix javascript plugin
  • Reorganise the index logic, allows launcher to be overridden

Keep an eye on the Migration Guide to 2.5 for Developers in the coming fortnight as it is updated with more details about these features and changes.
