Laravel 5.7.15 Released

Laravel 5.7.15 Released

Laravel 5.7.15 is available with a new validation rule and Eloquent relationship getters — first, the starts_with validation rule which allows you to check that an input starts with a string.

$request->validate([
    'greeting' => 'starts_with:hello',
]);

You can also pass multiple strings, in which the rule will pass if at least one matches the input:

$request->validate([
    'greeting' => 'starts_with:hello,hola',
]);

Next, the date_equals validation rule is now translatable, and you should update your resources/lang/en/validation.php file with the following:

'date_equals' => 'The :attribute must be a date equal to :date.',

You can see the pull request to laravel/laravel for the new translation key.

New relationship getters are available in this release including:

  • BelongsToMany::getParentKeyName
  • BelongsToMany::getRelatedKeyName
  • HasManyThrough::getFirstKeyName
  • HasManyThrough::getForeignKeyName
  • HasManyThrough::getSecondLocalKeyName
  • HasOneOrMany::getLocalKeyName
  • MorphToMany::getInverse
