This week, Symfony development activity was very intense. First, we continued removing some container injections in favor of service locators. Then, we replaced the wildcard-based method autowiring by @required annotation and deprecated X-Status-Code for a better alternative. Finally, we added support for making form types private services and optimized the Symfony router matcher.
