Symfony 3.0.0 released 2015/12/01

Wow, Symfony 3.0 has been released.

I have to say I'm a big fan of the Symfony release process. It's very professional and perfect for projects that need years of support.

I realise that talking about Symfony 3 makes people nervous and this post is going to explain the Symfony 3 strategy and the reasons why you should not panic.

So, don't panic. Actually, 3.0 is not really that big a leap forward. It's nothing compared to the leap from Symfony 1 to Symfony 2. Just look at the upgrade guide. Of course, there are changes that you need to make, but most of the changes are in methods that have already been deprecated in previous versions.

I haven't tried updating yet but I will try it soon.
