I attended the great symfony day 09 in cologne yesterday. It was an awesome conference with nice people, interesting talks and discussions.
Propel is dead
One thing got crystal clear during the talks. Propel is dead! In the next version 1.3 of symfony Doctrine will be the default orm. If thats not a hint … In symfony 2.0 Propel will be deprecated. Additionally the “leader of Propel” stated out that he is no longer leading Propel.
So its time to move to Doctrine. The new features in Doctrine 1.2 described by Jonathan Wage are quite nice. And Doctrine 2.0 will be even more impressive.
Sadly it will require a lot of work rewriting Propel “criteria queries” with Doctrine’s DQL-queries. But I’m certain that this step makes my applications future prove.
