Welcome to this week's Symfony Station Communiqué. It's your weekly review of the essential news in the Symfony and PHP development communities. We also cover the cybersecurity world in detail this 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 4.4.43, 5.4.10, 6.0.10, and 6.1.2 maintenance versions were released. Meanwhile, the upcoming Symfony 6.2 version added a Enum env var processor to transform environment variables into BackedEnums and improved the Serializer to provide context information from attribute for promoted properties.“
SymfonyCasts continues expanding their Symfony 6 Fundamentals Course.
And announced an upcoming course.
