A Week of Symfony #892 (29 January – 4 February 2024)

This week, Symfony 5.4.35, 6.3.12, 6.4.3 and 7.0.3 maintenance versions were released. The 6.3.12 version is the last one in that branch, so you should consider upgrading to Symfony 6.4 or higher soon. Meanwhile, the development activity was very intense and focused on adding new features to the upcoming Symfony 7.1 version, including a new TypeInfo component. Finally, we published a blog post about our experience upgrading websites to AssetMapper.
