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. And there are a good number of Drupal items this week.
Please 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 a 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, Symfony 5.4.18, 6.0.18, 6.1.10, and 6.2.4 maintenance versions were released. Meanwhile, the upcoming Symfony 6.3 version improved the performance of service container compilation and added a StreamedJsonResponse for efficient JSON streaming.“
SymfonyCasts continued their Netgen Layouts course.
Chris Coyier of CSS Tricks fame, writes: “one gets the feeling that if any of the huge platform-producing tech companies could have their way, they’d have us all writing proprietary apps for their platform only. Right this second, the web feels like it’s in a good spot, but it also feels like the native vs. web battle is a swinging pendulum.
Say, somehow, the web is dealt some massive blow, and native apps have all the momentum. As in, for native apps to somehow become the default choice for organizations building digital products.
Support PWAs peeps.
