Symfony is a Web application framework for PHP5 projects. It aims to speed up the creation and maintenance of Web applications, and to replace repetitive coding tasks with power, control, and pleasure.

Symfony is compatible with almost every database system. In addition, it has a very small overhead. Using symfony is so natural and easy for people used to PHP and the design patterns of Internet applications that the learning curve is very low.

Here are some key features of "Symfony":
simple templating and helpers
cache management
multiple environments support
deployment management
smart URLs
multilingual and I18N support
object model and MVC separation
Ajax support

Symfony is based on several great open-source projects.

What's New in This Release:
Easier installation and better compatibility.
Major performance improvements.
A new plugin system and unit test library.
Easier templating.
A better and more flexible Model layer.
A new mixin feature, new behaviors for Propel classes, more user-friendly development tools, more flexible filter system, and easier deployment.
