See docs change proposed: symfony/symfony-docs#514
./app/console doctrine:fixtures:load --append --fixtures="Company/CompanyBundle/DoctrineFixtures/ORM/Example.php" always throws exception
Sadly filenames are not yet supported. You can only use directories at the moment.
Here is one patch to solve it. doctrine/data-fixtures#79
Hopefully something like that will get added there, and then supported here.
Will be released next week
