On the Symfony Finland site they’ve posted a new article covering the four things they like about Symfony 4, the next major version of the popular PHP framework.
Symfony 4 launches on November 30th 2017, some two years after the previous major release that was Symfony 3. Symfony 3 can be thought of as a stabilization release with code cleanup, some new functionality and housekeeping Standard Edition (AKA Full Stack Framework).
In the latest incarnation, there are more significant changes, especially to the framework and some key components. Let’s take a look at four features that address frustrations that I’ve had in the past.
The four features in the list are:
- Simplified project structure
- Easier installation of extensions
- Dependency Injection improvements
- Symfony Encore for asset management
Each section comes with a description of the update and links to other resources where you can find out more information about them. The post wraps up with an overall look at this new version (and Symfony Flex) and how they can improve a Symfony developer’s life in the future.
