This communiqué originally appeared on Symfony Station, your source for cutting-edge Symfony, PHP, and Cybersecurity news.
Welcome to this week's Symfony Station Communiqué. It's your review of the essential news in the Symfony and PHP development communities. There’s lots of PHP coverage in this one. Nice. We also cover the cybersecurity world.
Please take your time and enjoy the items most relevant and valuable to you.
As always, thanks to Javier Eguiluz and Symfony for sharing our latest 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 a 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, the upcoming Symfony 6.3 version introduced a getEnum() method in ParameterBag and a new WithLogLevel attribute to set the log level for exceptions. In addition, Symfony announced its first official conferences for 2023.“
