Hi everyone,

It's the first newsletter for the month of November and it's also a week of latest releases. New updates for PHP 8.1 and 8.2 are now available. We also have the latest beta release from Symfony and updates for Laravel 10.29 ad CakePHP. There's also a new PHP Annotated for the month of October available. In podcasts this week we have new episodes from No Compromise about allowing non-developers to manage roles and permissions in the application interface. Do you think that's a good idea? Over at Developer Tea the topic is to spend time intentionally through expectation mapping. In a world where some of us are being pulled in different directions, this episode may provide some useful insights. Finally in our Reading section we have a blog on Hw Cookies are shaping the future, as well as Real time web applications with Laravel and a guide on Events and Listeners in Laravel. We have all that and more, so we do hope you enjoy this week's newsletter. If you're a student or developer on the move and want the latest PHP news and updates in one place, then subscribe to PHPWeekly.

If you have an article, tutorial or podcast that you would like to be featured in our newsletter, feel free to reach out to us at [email protected].
