I started with Symfony Friday Nov 28 and had no problem installing and getting started. When I got back to it on Sunday and created a new project it appeared to function correctly but when viewed in a web browser it did not. The folders that should have been created during the install were blank. It seems to be a permissions problem but I do not know how to fix it, 2.5.7 still works fine. I have also tried it on Windows 7 and that displays an error that it does not have permission to create the files. From what I can tell in searching the web there seems to be similar problems with some flavors of Linux also.
