Laravel 10.8 Released

The Laravel PHP framework released version 10.8 this week, which introduces several new features and improvements, including a new Pint rule for formatting method chaining indentation and syntactic sugar added to the Process::pipe() method. Additionally, class-based "after" validation rules were added.

In addition to framework updates, Laravel Pint received a new rule to ensure proper indentation in method chaining:

Let's look at the features and changes introduced in Laravel 10.8:

Syntactic Sugar Added to Process::pipe()

Wendell Adriel contributed syntactic sugar to the pipe() method he contributed in Laravel 10.7:

/*
Given: the following in test.txt
Hello, world
foo
*/
 
// New syntatic sugar:
$result = Process::pipe([
'cat test.txt',
'grep -i "foo"',
]);
$result->output(); // "foo"
 
// Equivalent to the following, introduced in Laravel 10.7
$pipe = Process::pipe(function ($pipe) {
$pipe->command('cat test.txt'),
$pipe->command('grep -i "foo"'),
});
$pipe->run()->output(); // "foo"

Class-based "After" Validation Rules

Tim MacDonald contributed Class based after validation rules which allows an array of "after" rules:

Validator::make(/* .. */)->after([
new AfterRuleOne(/* ... */),
new AfterRuleTwo(/* ... */),
function ($validator) use (/* ... */): void => {
// ...
},
});

Improvements were also made to form requests where you can define an after() method in your class:

class UserRequest
{
protected function rules(): array
{
return [
//
];
}
 
protected function after(MyService $service): array
{
return [
new AfterRule($this->value, $service),
// ...
];
}
}

See Pull Request #46757 for full details on what's new in regards to validation after rules in Laravel 10.8.

Allow specifying index name when calling constrained()

Luke Kuzmish contributed the ability to specify an index name when calling constrained()

// Before 10.8
$table->foreignIdFor(KnowledgeBaseResource::class)->nullable();
$table
->foreign('knowledge_base_resource_id', 'my_foreign_index')
->references('id')
->on('knowledge_base_resources')
->constrained()
->nullOnDelete();

Now, you can do the following instead:

$table->foreignIdFor(KnowledgeBaseResource::class)
->nullable()
->constrained(null, null, 'my_foreign_index')
->nullOnDelete();

Max Exceptions Added to Broadcasting an Event

Anjorin Damilare contributed a maxExceptions property that you can add to events that will determine the maximum number of unhandled exceptions to allow before failing. See Pull Request #46800 for details.
