As a part of larger version jump to 3.0, the Symfony community has refined the look of this rather ubiquitous element appearing on millions of developer screens daily. The activity of the community in this rather subtle change underlines the importance of good development tools.

The participation on the pull request itself is rather impressive:

The related pull request got almost 150 comments and reviews made by 28 participants. In total, 44 commits were needed to tweak the final design, comprising 1,200 changed lines across 31 files.

The redesigned interface is now available for any Symfony 2.8-dev or 3.0-dev applications.
