Symfony 4 compatibility

eZ's Product team has put Symfony 4.x compatibility on the roadmap targeting end of year possibly in sync with 3.0. But it has started taking feedback in the form of an Epic on our Issue tracker, with a few identified issues already. If you are developing on eZ Platform, and you spot compatibility issues, do let us know, and register an issue on our tracker.

Releases and documentation

Did you know that our Fast Track releases are supported for 5-6 months now (since eZ Platform 2.0), and that our release schedule changed to a 4 month release cycle (instead of 3), To better support this for our developers, the documentation team will keep documentation of these releases available longer on

Question of the Week

A current question in our Community is the support for workflows in eZ Platform. The most recent discussion can be found on our forum. Have you developed a workflow in eZ Platform already? Consider sharing your solution and reply in that forum thread.

Note from the Product team: `Flex workflow` (basic send for review and approval feature) is already available on eZ Platform for all enterprise customers. We plan `Advanced workflow`,a more complex editorial workflow allowing administrators to create a workflow with multiple steps and users responsible for every steps. So far, this feature is targeted for 2.4. We are currently on the specification phase. `Advanced workflow` will also be available for enterprise customers but some components might end up in the open source version.
