Laravel 5.5.29 Released

Laravel 5.5.29 Released

Laravel 5.5.29, released Monday, is the first release of Laravel 5.5 in 2018.

You can now qualify an column in a model with the Model::qualifyColumn() method, which works like this:

// -> articles.title

The new qualifyColumn() method was applied internally to clean up some receptive code. For example, in the BelongsTo relation:

// Previous code

// New code

Support for new author fields in the Slack message attachment is available now: author_icon, author_link, and author_name.

This release has quite a few additions, changes, and fixes—here are the full release notes:
