In this article, we're thrilled to introduce the new Symfony Documentation: a result of over 150 hours of volunteer work to reword most contents and reorganize the entire documentation.
In Symfony 3.2 we added a new Workflow component to help you define "workflows", which are elements that describe a sequence of operations that can be executed repeatedly to provide some service (e.g. buying a product in an e-commerce application), process some information (e.g. publishing some content in a CMS application), etc.
Symfony 3.2 added support for "same-site" cookie attribute, fixed some inconsistencies in cache-related HTTP headers and added a new method called isMethodIdempotent().
In Symfony 3.2, we've added a new user resolver that allows to get the current user in any controller via type-hinting and we deprecated the Controller::getUser() shortcut, which will be removed in Symfony 4.0.
ChoiceType is the most powerful Symfony form type and it's used to create select drop-downs, radio buttons and checkboxes. In Symfony 3.2 we added a new feature to improve its performance: lazy loading the choice values.
In Symfony 3.2, YAML files added support for including underscores in numeric literals (integer, float or hexadecimal) to improve their readability.
In this second of a three-part series, we introduce four additional new features added by Symfony 3.2 to the Console component to improve its DX (developer experience).
The Console component will receive a lot of new features in Symfony 3.2, mostly related to improving its DX (developer experience). In this first of a three-part series, we introduce four of those new features.
Symfony 3.2 adds support to define the fragment when generating any URL. It also adds support for using arrays and defining the variable types for XML route values.
Symfony 3.2 improves the cache mechanism introduced in Symfony 3.1 with some features not defined by the PSR-6: Caching Interface standard. The first new feature is the tag-based invalidation to create tagged caches.
Symfony 3.2 includes a new DateInterval form type to deal with calendar-related information such as reminders and bookings.
Compiler passes are the mechanism provided by Symfony to manipulate the service definitions while the container is being compiled before the application execution. In Symfony 3.2 we introduced some new features for them.
