A week of symfony #570 (27 November - 3 December 2017)

This week, Symfony 4.0 was released. This is not just a new major Symfony version, it's an entirely re-imagined and simplified developer experience. In addition, Symfony 3.4 was released, which is a long term support version (bugs fixed until November 2020). Lastly, the Symfony diversity initiative got a boost with the appointment of Lukas Kahwe Smith as the leader of this important initiative.
