Laravel 10.7 Released

The Laravel PHP framework released version 10.7 this week, including new features and improvements contributed by various developers in the Laravel community.

One of the notable additions is the pipe() method in the Process layer, which allows commands to be run in sequence and pass the output of the previous command to the input of the next one.

Another addition is the setValue() method in the Validator class, which enables developers to set the value of a given attribute. Additionally, the release includes fixes for various bugs and issues reported by the Laravel community.

Let's take a closer look at the features and changes introduced in Laravel 10.7:

Added a pipe() method to the Process layer

Wendell Adriel contributed a pipe() method for the Process layer. This method will run commands in sequence and pass the output of the previous command to the input of the next one:

$pipe = Process::pipe(function ($pipe) {
$pipe->command('cat test.txt'),
$pipe->command('grep -i "foo"'),
$pipe->run()->output(); // "foo"

This can be handy when you need to chain the result of a group of commands.

Validator setValue() method

Joël Harkes contributed a setValue() method in the Validator class to set the value of a given attribute. The author of the PR gave this description for the need for this method:

For package development, I would like to make it possible for rules to override data to make the validation 'type-safe'. There is now no possible way to efficiently update a value inline. I can call setData() but it would completly reload the rules itself as well cause in big slowdown.

// with this PR:
$this->validator->setValue($attribute, $value);
// previously: very slow!
Arr::set($this->data, $attribute, $value);

Check for invokable event listeners in tests

Luke Kuzmish contributed the ability to assert invokable event listeners which was previously not possible:

CreateDemandWorkOrder::class, // has __invoke() method

See Issue #46652 and Pull Request #46683 for details.
