Laravel 5.7.20 Released

The Laravel team released 5.7.20 this week with added chunkById() support on model relations, a new collection method, and some new FilesystemAdapter assertion methods.

First, you can now call chunkById() on related models in BelongsToMany and HasManyThrough relations:

$user->articles()->chunkById(1, function (Collection $collection) {
// ...

Next, a new whereNotBetween collection method is useful to filter collection items not between a given range:

$filtered = $collection->whereNotBetween('price', [100, 200]);

In the above example, items greater than 200 or less than 100 get returned in a filtered collection instance. The condition does not include the upper and lower boundaries, so in our example items that are exactly 100 or 200 are not included.

Next, you can allow predefined log channels to change the formatter via the configuration. Check out PR #26895 for further details.

The FilesystemAdapter storage assertions are now chainable and can handle multiple files at once:


You can now access the current route’s original bound parameters:

// A single param
// All params

The last new feature is pushedJobs() method on the QueueFake fake to retrieve all the jobs pushed to the queue during a test.
