Laravel 5.5.22 Released image

Laravel v5.5.22 was released yesterday with some helpful methods to return a file from storage as a response, and some nice database additions.

Jonathan Reinink added support for response() and download() methods on the file system. There are situations where you might want to return a file in the controller from storage or force a download:

class DocumentController extends Controller
{
public function show(Document $document)
{
// Return the document as a response
return Storage::response($document->path);
 
// Use a custom filename
return Storage::response($document->path, 'sweet.pdf');
 
// Force the file to download
return Storage::download($document->path);
}
}

Paulo Freitas added better temporary table support, which adds temporary table support to SQL Server, making $table->temporary() usable with any database driver, and he also added test coverage for temporary table creation.

Paulo also added better precision support on DateTime columns for databases that support them (MySQL, PostgreSQL and SQL Server). Due to some inconsistencies related to databases default precisions and Laravel’s default behavior, this is not entirely functional for SQL Server yet, but this is an already existing issue for SQL Server’s DateTime columns precision handling.

A removal worth noting is the between operator in a basic where clause by Mohamed Said.

Using between is currently not working and generating wrong sql:

\App\User::where('created_at', 'between', ['2017-01-01', '2017-01-30'])->get();

Used to generate:

select * from users where created_at between 2017-01-01

Now, you should use whereBetween instead (like whereIn).
