Laravel 5.7.14 Released

Laravel 5.7.14 Released

Before Thanksgiving last week Laravel 5.7.14 was released with the ability to make asset root URLs configurable with the app.asset_url config option. This release contains other convenient configurations and overrides:

First, the Illuminate\Cookie\CookieJar is now macroable.

You now have the ability to disable the password reset functionality by passing the reset key in your routes/web.php file:

Auth::routes(['reset' => false]);

Next, you can publish Laravel error views just like any other views from a service provider with the vendor:publish command. Running the pubish command will result in templates from /Illuminate/Foundation/Exceptions/views being copied too resources/views/errors.

You can configure an asset root URL in the config/app.php file:

The configuration might look something like:

'asset_url' => 'https://cdn.example.com',

You can now also set $tries and $timeout in a \Illuminate\Notifications\Notification instance. Here’s an example from the pull request:

use Illuminate\Bus\Queueable;
use Illuminate\Notifications\Notification;
use Illuminate\Contracts\Queue\ShouldQueue;
use Illuminate\Notifications\Messages\MailMessage;

class TestNotification extends Notification implements ShouldQueue
{
    use Queueable;

    public $tries = 3; // Max tries

    public $timeout = 15; // Timeout seconds

    /**
     * Create a new notification instance.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function __construct()
    {
        //
    }

    /**
     * Get the notification's delivery channels.
     *
     * @param  mixed  $notifiable
     * @return array
     */
    public function via($notifiable)
    {
        return ['mail'];
    }

    /**
     * Get the mail representation of the notification.
     *
     * @param  mixed  $notifiable
     * @return \Illuminate\Notifications\Messages\MailMessage
     */
    public function toMail($notifiable)
    {
        return (new MailMessage)
                    ->line('The introduction to the notification.')
                    ->action('Notification Action', url('/'))
                    ->line('Thank you for using our application!');
    }
}
