Symfony Station Communiqué — 23 September 2022. A look at Symfony, PHP, and Cybersecurity news!

This communiqué originally appeared on Symfony Station, your source for cutting-edge Symfony and PHP news.

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.

Take your time and enjoy the items most relevant and valuable to you.

As always, thanks to Javier Eguiluz and Symfony for sharing our last communiqué in their Week of Symfony.

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 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, development activity focused on tweaking and finishing some of the new features of Symfony 6.2, to be released at the end of November 2022. In addition to a new ChainUserChecker that allows calling multiple user checkers for a firewall, we merged the Symfony Profiler redesign which refreshes the look and feel of this debugging tool.“
