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.
I had a death in the family this week (welcome not tragic) that took up several days, so this is an abbreviated edition.
Feel free to 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, the upcoming Symfony 6.4 continued deprecating features that will be removed in Symfony 7.0, like the doctrine/annotations integration. Meanwhile, we published an article to explain how to prepare for Symfony 6.4 and 7.0 releases, and we announced a new talk for the SymfonyLive Berlin 2023 conference (October 5-6).”
