Laravel 5.5.23 Released

Laravel 5.5.23 Released

Laravel v5.5.23 is now available with the latest additions, changes, and fixes!

This release adds some accessors methods to BelongsToMany by Taylor Otwell, and a firstWhere() method to collections by Joseph Sibler.

You can use the firstWhere() works like first() but with operators instead of a callback:

// Default operator is `=`
$firstActiveUser = $users->firstWhere('active', true);
$firstAdultUser = $users->firstWhere('age', '>=', 18);

Typically, you would use first() to do the same before this release:

$firstActiveUser = $users->first(function ($user) {
    return $user->active === true;
});

$firstAdultUser = $users->first(function ($user) {
    return $user->age >= 18;
});

The new firstWhere is an excellent option that I’ve already found myself using in a couple of places, and you can still use first() if you prefer.

Joseph is also known for Bouncer, a package for Laravel roles and ability authorization.

Again, we’d like to thank Till Kruss for putting together the changelog for Laravel releases, and all of the contributors that make Laravel better with each release.
