Posted on January 25, 2015 by Marco Pivetta

We are happy to announce the immediate availability Doctrine ORM 2.5.0-alpha2.

We encourage all of our users to help us by trying out this alpha release. Please report any possible problems or incompatibilities that may have been introduced during development.
