Laravel 5.6.12 Released image

Laravel 5.6.12 shipped over the weekend with added support for signed routes and URLs along with quite a few other new additions.

Support for signed routes was added by Taylor Otwell, which provides a few new methods you can use to generate a signed route and a temporary signed route. For example, if you have a named route foo, you can generate a temporary URL. The following snippet comes from the pull request tests:

Route::get('/foo/{id}', function (Request $request, $id) {
return $request->hasValidSignature() ? 'valid' : 'invalid';
})->name('foo');
 
URL::temporarySignedRoute('foo', now()->addMinutes(5), ['id' => 1]);

The signed routes come with a new ValidateSignature middleware that will throw an InvalidSignatureException if the route signature is tampered with or expires, which results in a 401 status code.

Two new query builder methods were added, fromSub() and fromRaw() that help you create a subquery on from, instead of only being able to use table names.

Next up, is a new “not regex” validation rule that validates that an attribute doesn’t pass a regular expression check.

An “after” callback was added for model factories that allow a user to define an action to be run after the model is created or made using create() or make().

A new “any filled” conditional was added to the request used to determine if any of a group of inputs is filled on the request. Before Laravel 5.6.12, you would do something like this:

if ($request->filled('disk') || $request->filled('site')) {
//
}

Now, it can be changed to use the new method conditional, which will accept an array of inputs or any number of arguments:

if ($request->filledAny(['disk', 'site'])) {
//
}
 
// Or
 
if ($request->filledAny('disk', 'site')) {
//
}

Two new assertions were added to the TestResponse class, assertNotFound() and assertForbidden(). These methods are used to assert a 404 status code and a 403 status code respectively.

Last up test helpers were added to assert that a job is queued with a chain.

Here’s the full release notes from the Laravel 5.6 changelog:
