Laravel 5.7.23 Released


January 30th, 2019


The Laravel team and contributors released Laravel v5.7.23 yesterday, along with a fix release for the ResetPassword notification in v5.7.24.

The bulk of the new changes are in v5.7.23:

First, the AbstractPaginator::getOptions() was added to retrieve the original paginator options which are now stored in an $options property.

Next, an orWhere proxy method was added for scopes in the EloquentBuilder, with a new class introduced to Illuminate\Support called HigherOrderBuilderProxy to proxy scope calls onto the query builder. Given the scopes one, two, and three, you can write the following:

2 ->one()
3 ->orWhere->two()
4 ->orWhere->three();

You can now configure the app path for your application, which was previously only possible through subclassing the Application class. In the bootstrap/app.php file after the application instance is created:

1$app = new Illuminate\Foundation\Application(
2 $_ENV['APP_BASE_PATH'] ?? dirname(__DIR__)
5$app->useAppPath(__DIR__ . '/../src/App');

The last new feature in v5.7.23 is a configuration for the stack logger:

1'stack' => [
2 'driver' => 'stack',
3 'channels' => ['single'],
4 'ignore_exceptions' => true,

When set to true, the handlers are wrapped in Monolog’s WhatFailureGroupHandler handler. Their wrapper/special handlers documentation describes this handler as follows:

This handler extends the GroupHandler ignoring exceptions raised by each child handler. This allows you to ignore issues where a remote tcp connection may have died, but you do not want your entire application to crash and may wish to continue to log to other handlers.

Next, v5.7.24 was tagged to fix the ResetPassword notification’s call to Lang::getFromJson(). See the PR #27351 for details. Users should upgrade to v5.7.24.
