The release of Symfony 2.1.0 messed up everything, but I have no clue how to fix it :( #1089

I quite don't understand what's going on, but the current state of the Symfony packages is broken.

The simplest example is Silex:

  • clone fabpot/silex
  • run composer.phar update --dev
  • packages from the require section are installed, but the require-dev packages cannot be resolved as a set of installable packages.


  • move all packages from the require-dev section to the require section
  • run composer.phar update --dev
  • everything is installed as expected.

I'm lost.


@fabpot this is because the dependencies between the different Symfony component are very strict: they force using self.version.
But the initial install selects the stable 2.1.0 tag for some components but chooses 2.1.x-dev for HttpKernel. This breaks things later as symfony/security depends on both HttpKernel and HttpFoundation which have been installed with different versions.


@stof: So, changing all self.version to 2.1.* would fix the issue?


@fabpot Yes that should do the job.


Only in the require but not in the replace of the main package though I'd say.
