Laravel v5.5.28 Released

Laravel v5.5.28 Released

Likely the last release of 2017, Laravel 5.5.28 shipped on December 28th.

A notifyNow() method was added to the AnonymousNotifyable class, which allows you to do:

Notification::route('mail', '')
    ->notifyNow(new UserNotification($message));

This release also adds an EventFake::assertDispatchedTimes() method to assert the number of times an event is dispatched.

Also worth mentioning, a fix was merged for properly handling inline message for size rules.
