Doctrine 2.4 Beta2 released

Posted on May 11, 2013 by Benjamin Eberlei


We have released the second beta version of Doctrine 2.4. Some of the changes are listed in this talk by Alexander and me from Symfony Live Berlin last year.

Most of the new functionality is already documented and marked with "Since 2.4". We will also prepare a blog post for the release that shows all the new functionality in one place.

You can find a list of changes on Jira.

You can install the release with Composer:

    "require": {
        "doctrine/orm": "2.4.0-beta2",
        "doctrine/dbal": "2.4.0-beta2",
        "doctrine/common": "2.4.0-rc2"

Please test this release with your existing applications to allow us to find BC breaks and remove them before the final release. This will be the last beta before Release Candidates will be created. We expect to need only one RC and that the final release will follow shortly.

You should make yourself familiar with the UPGRADE documents, as we had to make some backwards compatibility breaks to fix nasty bugs:
