New in Symfony 4.1: HTML5 Email Validation

Symfony 4.1 adds a new email address validation mode that uses the validation logic defined in the HTML5 specification.

A week of symfony #576 (8-14 January 2018)

This week, Symfony announced the end of Silex, the end of the Symfony Standard Edition and the end of the Symfony Installer because Symfony 4 makes them unnecessary. In addition, we explained our next steps for the Symfony diversity initiative.

The end of the Symfony Installer

The Symfony Installer tool end of life is scheduled for November 2020, when Symfony 3.4 will not be supported anymore.

The end of Silex

The current stable version of Silex is still maintained for bugs and security issues. But its end of life is set to June 2018.

The end of the Symfony Standard Edition

Thanks to Flex and the new skeletons, it's time to retire the Symfony Standard Edition.

Next steps for the diversity initiative

In order to improve the diversity of the Symfony community we need to work on two main topics: 1) become more diversity friendly and 2) attracting and integrating people from marginalized communities. As possible next steps several ideas have been collected and added to the new [diversity repository](https://github.com/symfony/diversity). All community members are invited to add their own ideas, add comments to existing ideas or champion ideas to bring them to life!
