More than 7 months after the previous release, I have the great pleasure to introduce version 1.2 of Faker, the fake data generator for PHP. Thirty-five contributors from all around the globe collaborated to add 12 new locales, new types of random data, and more robustness thanks to a few bugfixes.

Thanks to the wonderful work of the contributors, Faker is now available in 27 languages. The new languages available in version 1.2 are, in alphabetical order:

fr_BE: Belgian French
nl_BE: Belgian Dutch
pt_BR: Brazilian Portuguese

Quite unexpectedly, I just received an email from Hong-Kong listing the names of the 48,145 persons who downloaded Faker. I don’t know how the sender got it, but it gives me the opportunity to thank you all. So without further ado, my warm thanks to:
