In the development lifecycle of web applications, I think deployment is something that doesn't get nearly enough attention of developers. But where you can test your code, testing deployment is a bit harder. A good system for deploying applications is therefore a useful thing to have. Symfony has a very easy and strong system for deploying applications based on rsync.

Steer CMS is a new open source application based on symfony. It offers a CMS for websites in a way similar to other open source CMS'es, yet is based on symfony and so quite a bit more interesting to me.

As a developer, you usually try to give as much flexibility as possible to your user. Where the specs don't give exact guidelines, you interpret the specs and offer flexibility, usually. Today came the proof that developers should think a bit better before offering flexibility, especially with mission-critical applications.

Lately there seems to be an increase in the #symfony room on freenode of people asking how to go about working with symfony 1.1. Let me give a short status of the new version of the framework.

Finally the day has come. The final PHP4 release is available , so from now on, aside from possible security issues, no new PHP4 releases will be done. PHP5 is without a doubt the main line for PHP now.
