A Week of Symfony #769 (20-26 September 2021)

This week, Symfony announced that Flex is going serverless. This will simplify our operations and will allow you to host custom recipes in your own repositories and to add features on top of the public Flex API. In addition, the upcoming Symfony 5.4 version added support for RGB notation in Console colors and added a new EnumType form field.
