Symfony is a PHP framework originally created by the Sensio Labs company in 2005. It is free software released under the MIT license. The actual major version is 5 and the last minor version is 5.0.

It also provides a long term support version (LTS) which provides a minimum 3 years maintenance period. The actual LTS is 4.4.
