The Symfony project has posted an announcement about the start of the official release process for the framework's latest branch - Symfony 1.1.
As the features for symfony 1.1 are quite finished now, it's time to move on and start the release process.
They've made two new branches in preparation to get things ready - one for the release itself and the other for the release's documentation. Users wanting to use the latest stable, still point to /branches/1.0. Those wanting to test this upcoming release, use /branches/1.1.
