Welcome to this week's Symfony Station Communiqué. It's your review of the essential news in the Symfony and PHP development communities focusing on protecting democracy. We also cover the cybersecurity world and the Fediverse.
There is plenty of good content in each category this week, so please take your time and enjoy the ones most relevant and valuable to you.
Or jump straight to your favorite section.
My opinions will be in bold. And will often involve profanity.
A significant proportion of the content we curate is on Medium. I highly recommend investing in a membership to access all the articles you want to read. It's a small investment that can boost 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 6.2.9 maintenance release was published. Meanwhile, the upcoming Symfony 6.3 version continued adding features such as: adding the locale to the app global Twig variable, a new token handler and user for OpenID Connect, two new attributes called MapRequestPayload and MapQueryString to map Request input to typed objects and a new debug command for Serializer. Lastly, we published all the information about the workshops of the SymfonyOnline conference in June 2023.“
SymfonyCasts continues its second API Platform course.
There was not a single item that stood out to me this week. So, I will feature Javier Eguiluz’s posts about what’s new in Symfony 6.3.
