Eventually, when Doctrine is officially selected as default ORM for symfony 1.3 we’ve decided that it’s time to use Doctrine. We knew all Doctrine’s advantages before but we used Propel from the very beginning of symfony and it’s actually sad to understand that Propel lost this war.
The biggest reason why it’s not fun to stop using Propel – most of Symfony plugins are written for Propel not for Doctrine. It was great to figure out that new Doctrine supports extensions (and there 5 extensions ready):
But it’s obviously too small for the quick start. We are planning to start migrating of our most popular plugins to Doctrine though. Let it be one more brick into the great wall 🙂
Ok, so Doctrine…
