This week Symfony started working on stabilizing the new features introduced for Symfony 3.3, specially the ones related to autowiring. Symfony also added a new Kernel::getProjectDir() method to get the root directory of the project instead of the kernel directory. Lastly, the first blog posts about Symfony 4 were published, outlining the future of the Symfony project.
