In Symfony 3.3 we added a new linter to check the XLIFF translation files.
Symfony 3.3 adds a new experimental dependency injection mechanism called "getter injection".
This week, the DependencyInjection component continued focusing most of the development activity. Its most significant change was the support for named arguments. Meanwhile, we updated tests to use the new PHPUnit namespaces and we introduced support for using glob patterns everywhere to load configuration files.
In Symfony 3.3, the "autowiring-types" option is deprecated in favor of defining simple service aliases.
In Symfony 3.3, configuration files can import other resources using "glob patterns" to make them simpler and easier to maintain.

Symfony 3.3 adds support for "getter autowiring" in PHP 7 applications to improve the RAD features available for Symfony applications.
Symfony 3.3 containers implement a standard called "PSR-11: Container Interface" to increase application interoperability.
This week, development activity focused on the DependencyInjection component: we enhanced the logs generated during the execution of the compiler passes, we added getter injection as an experimental feature and we deprecated autowiring-types in favor of aliases. Meanwhile, we continued adding "lazy loading" to some features such as value resolvers and request matchers in FirewallMap.
In order to make the Symfony ecosystem stronger and more standardized, we propose to use some common topics for GitHub repositories related to Symfony.
