Laravel 10.10 Released

The latest release of Laravel, version 10.10, brings many exciting new features and enhancements. With each release, Laravel continues to push the boundaries of what's possible in web development. In this version, notable contributions include features such as the Sleep class, the hashed model cast, and the ability to mark commands as "isolatable."

Let's check a few new feature highlights in this week's release:

Sleep class that wraps native sleep() and usleep()

Tim MacDonald contributed a Sleep class that wraps native sleep() and usleep() functions. Using this class means code that relies on sleep() doesn't need to sleep, which improves testing speed and still maintains confidence using the provided test helpers:

protected function setUp(): void
// Usage

Here's what the code API looks like:


You can also use the above to compose something more complex:


I love to see that Laravel continues to ship amazing features with every release!

Hashed cast

Günther Debrauwer contributed a hashed cast that can ensure an attribute's value is hashed:

The encrypted cast exists, but a cast that hashes a value does not exist yet. In a lot of applications (even Laravel's default application), the user model has a password. I think it makes sense to have a hashed cast that ensures the password (or some other attribute's value) is always hashed before being saved in the database.

Here's an example of what it looks like:

public $casts = [
'password' => 'hashed',

Mark commands as "isolatable"

@bytestream contributed the ability to configure a command to be "isolatable" using the $isolated property:

// equivalent to manually passing `--isolated`
protected $isolated = true;
// equivalent to manually passing `--isolated=12`
protected $isolatedCommandExitCode = 12;
