A Week of Symfony #811 (11-17 July 2022)

This week, we focused on finishing several new features for the upcoming Symfony 6.2 version: Console added support for multiple choice questions; we applied the SensitiveParameter PHP attribute to all the parameters that can contain sensitive values such as security tokens and passwords; and we enabled the use of lazy-loading ghost object proxies in Dependency Injection. Finally, we moved #[IsGranted()], #[Template()] and #[Cache()] attributes into Symfony components so we can get rid of the SensioFrameworkExtra bundle.
