New versions of Altium (22.x) changed their approach to component libraries. You now create components, to which a symbol and several footprints can be tied.

This allows you to reuse symbols across your component library ([Altium doc](https://www.altium.com/documentation/altium-designer/workspace-symbols#!reusing-a-symbol)). Additionally, you can use [generic components](https://www.altium.com/documentation/altium-designer/generic-components) in your designs to make a first version of your schematic without selecting a specific component.
