Last week, Symfony2’s first stable release, 2.0.0, has been released. We are big fans of this modern PHP framework, and have been working with it and contributing to it since it was introduced at the Symfony Live 2010 conference a year ago. It’s great to finally see it come to life officially, and I can’t wait to see the feedback of the broader user base.
Now that it is finally stable, I would like to take the chance to announce that Nelmio offers in-house Symfony2 training for businesses. This way you can get a team up to speed quickly. We can also help you with quality assurance and code reviews, which is a great way to learn about the framework while looking at a real use case and helping your project move forward.
If you are an individual looking for training, please contact us. We will schedule a class as soon as there are enough people showing interest. Even better so, if you are around Zürich in September, you can take part in the one day workshop I am giving at the /ch/open which is quite affordable.

We’re happy to welcome Igor Wiedler into our ranks starting in August!
He has been involved with phpBB development for a few years, but more importantly is core developer of the Silex micro-framework which is based on Symfony2 Components, which makes him a Symfony2 contributor as well.
You can find him on twitter and github.

Monolog is a simple logging library for PHP 5.3+, inspired by Python’s Logbook. It is namespaced, tested, PSR-0 compliant and all of these good things. It is fairly simple to use in any project and logs to files, syslog, FirePHP, sends emails or any combination of the above. Of course it’s extensible, and more handlers are planned for 1.1.
One of the notable features is the
FingersCrossedHandler. It logs everything, including debug information, but buffers it all until a certain log level (typically ERROR or CRITICAL) is reached. If you use that in production, you get a maximum of information in your logs, but only when it is actually needed.
Since I had some free time this week I got around polishing things for this first stable release. Additionally I wrote all the tests I consider necessary for this library. You can find Monolog on GitHub. Either clone it and checkout the 1.0.0 tag or use the big download button.
Monolog is also included in Symfony2 as the default logging library. On that note, Fabien merged Christophe‘s pull requests that clean-up the MonologBundle configuration. These changes will be available in the next (and hopefully last) Symfony2 RC.
I wasn’t alone working on this, so I would like to thank all the contributors to the project, past and future.
