In November, Symfony will release two new versions: 6.4 and 7.0. These versions offer similar new features but differ in backward compatibility and support duration. While updating from 6.0 to 6.4 is relatively seamless due to maintained compatibility, transitioning to 7.0 may require code adjustments. Symfony's LTS (long term support) versions, like 7.4, ensure bug fixes for up to three years and security updates for four years, compared to the standard eight months. Deciding which version to update to depends on your application's development status: if actively developed, opt for 7.0 to leverage new features; if development is stable or nonexistent, choose 6.4 for stability. Stay informed to make the best decision for your Symfony project!
