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.
We’re a little light on Symfony news this week so our Drupal and cybersecurity coverage was boosted.
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, the biggest new feature added to the upcoming Symfony 6.2 version was an access token authenticator. This security authenticator is able to fetch a token in the request header and retrieve the associated user identifier. It supports custom tokens and self-contained tokens such as JWT, Paseto, and SAML.“
