Laravel 10.25 Released image

This week, the Laravel team released v10.25 with exception throttling, a Str::take() method, and more. Laravel saw plenty of fixes, updates, and typo fixes this week, which is always appreciated from the community!

Throttle exceptions

Tim MacDonald contributed the ability to throttle exceptions by sampling/rate limiting exception reporting. Your exception Handler class can define a throttle() method which gives you flexibility to rate limit based on an exception type:

// App\Exceptions\Handler
use App\Exceptions\ApiMonitoringException;
use Illuminate\Broadcasting\BroadcastException;
use Illuminate\Cache\RateLimiting\Limit;
use Throwable;
* Throttle incoming exceptions.
protected function throttle(Throwable $e): mixed
return match (true) {
$e instanceof BroadcastException => Limit::perMinute(300),
$e instanceof ApiMonitoringException => Lottery::odds(1, 1000),
default => Limit::none(),

Note that you can return a Limit which you can use to limit the amount of logs logged (per minute in the example), a Lottery instance, or simply don't return anything if you want to opt-out for a given exception type.

Check out the documentation on Throttling Reported Exceptions to start using exception throttling in Laravel 10.25.

String take() method

Moshe Brodsky contributed a take() method to Str and Stringable that is syntactic sugar for substr() when you want to start at the first character:

// Before
str('abcdef')->substr(0, 2) // 'ab'
Str::substr('abcdef', 0, 2); // 'ab'
// After
str('abcdef')->take(2) // 'ab'
Str::take('abcdef', 2); // 'ab'

You can also take characters from the end with negative numbers:

Increase bcrypt rounds to 12

Stephen Rees-Carter contributed increasing bcrypt rounds from 10 to 12:

PHP is increasing the default bcrypt cost to either 11 or 12 to keep up with increases in computing, so we should do the same within Laravel. The current default of 10 was set in PHP 11 years ago, which is no longer a suitable default.

12 appears to be the sweet spot between performance and security, as confirmed by a member of the Hashcat team. Symfony uses a cost of 13, however that may be too high for some servers.

See Pull Request #48494 for further details on this change.
