A white paragraph.
Welcome to this week's Symfony Station Communiqué. It's your review of the essential news in the Symfony and PHP development communities. We also cover the cybersecurity world in detail.
Please take your time and enjoy the items most relevant and valuable to you.
As always, thanks to Javier Eguiluz and Symfony for sharing our earlier communiqué in their Week of Symfony.
My opinions will be in bold.
Many of the items we curate are on Medium. I recommend investing in membership as you can access everything you want to read. It’s a small investment in boosting your career. As you may have noticed, non-members can only access a limited number of articles per month.

As always, we will start with the official news from Symfony.
Highlight -> “This week, the upcoming Symfony 6.3 version added lots of new features, such as support for nesting autowiring-related attributes, allow to use HttpStatus attribute to set status code and headers for HTTP exceptions, introduce a feature to strip emojis in text contents and new methods for Clock component. In addition, Symfony published the Symfony Book updated for Symfony 6.2.“

After a workcation in France for SymfonyCon, a friend visiting us for their vacation, and various holidays, we finally had time to write a new article. I apologize for the delay as we try to get to one a month. But, life happens.
