eZ Publish has decided to no longer maintain their own kernel instead opting to now base its core on Symfony and its template system on Twig.  So what does this mean for you?

After missing a couple of months a new formal release eZ Publish Community Project 2013.11 was released. While fresh updates can be pulled from git at any time having a packaged release is important for the wider community and delivers smoother upgrade paths for all users.
