Laravel 5.6.11 Released

Laravel v5.6.10 is available as of Friday, which included a patch for a Carbon 1.24.0, which was then followed up by another fix tagged as Laravel 5.6.11.

Most of the new features happened in Laravel 5.6.10, so here are a few highlights:

First up, is Blueprint::dropMorphs(), which is used to indicate which polymorphic columns (and indexes) should be dropped.

Mailables now have the ability to attach a file to a message from storage with two new public methods, Mailable::attachFromStorage() and Mailable::attachFromStorageDisk().

Coming in next release of Laravel 5.6… easily attach files from Storage (S3, etc.) to mailables! ???? Thanks @reinink for the inspiration.

The last new change in Laravel 5.6.10 is new orWhere query builder methods for orWhereDay, orWhereMonth, and orWhereYear:

\App\User::whereDay('created_at', '=', 1)
->orWhereDay('created_at', '=', 2);

The last thing of note between the release of 5.6.10 and 5.6.11 releases are a few fixes for Carbon, resolved in Laravel 5.6.11. The Laravel 5.5 branch also includes two tagged releases that provide fixes for Carbon 1.24.0 and Carbon 1.24.1. You can find all this and more in the full 5.6 changelogs for both releases:
