A Week of Symfony #820 (12-18 September 2022)

This week, development activity focused on tweaking and finishing some of the new features of Symfony 6.2, to be released at the end of November 2022. In addition to a new ChainUserChecker that allows calling multiple user checkers for a firewall, we merged the Symfony Profiler redesign which refreshes the look and feel of this debugging tool.
