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 each week.
Take your time and enjoy the items most relevant and valuable to you.
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 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, Symfony 4.4.44, 5.4.11, 6.0.11 and 6.1.3 maintenance versions were released. Meanwhile, the upcoming Symfony 6.2 version introduced a new Clock component to decouple applications from the system clock and a new transliterator to translate emojis into many locales. Lastly, there's a new proposal to discuss about switching from YAML to PHP by default in Symfony configuration.“
SymfonyCasts continues expanding their Symfony 6 Fundamentals Course.
This week’s featured item is in French, so translate it in your browser if need be. Do it because this is the best Symfony vs Laravel comparison article I have run across. Why? Because Karim Pinchon has used both and compares how they handle various tasks. Great stuff.
