Symfony's Version Updates: A Parallel with Drupal's Approach


The new video by SymfonyCasts sheds light on Symfony's release cycle. It emphasizes that major version updates, like Symfony 7, primarily involve removing deprecated code from the previous version, Symfony 6.4. This mirrors Drupal's versioning strategy, where major releases, such as Drupal 9, eliminate deprecated code from Drupal 8.

By staying current with module releases and addressing deprecations in custom code beforehand, projects can mitigate risks. They can then smoothly transition between major versions over time. Contributed modules and themes are designed to support multiple major versions concurrently, simplifying the upgrade process. Oliver underscores the importance of proactive maintenance, highlighting how pre-upgrade groundwork significantly eases the transition to newer Drupal versions.
