Laravel 5.7.26 Released

Laravel 5.7.26 Released

The Laravel team released Laravel 5.7.26 yesterday with a new pipeline method and a method to temporarily bypass model events.

First, a new Pipeline method thenReturn was added by Tim MacDonald to allow additional work do be done on the object passed through:

// Previously
$users = app(Pipeline::class)
    ->then(function ($query) {
        return $query

// As of 5.7.26 you can use `thenReturn()`
$users = app(Pipeline::class)

Next, a few public getter methods were added:


License files were added to each Illuminate components since Laravel uses subtree splits for all the components:

Since we use a sub-split to split components into separate packages it’s wanted that we also provide a license file for each component.

A Model::withoutEvents() method was added to temporarily bypass model events. A common use-case for this is testing:

$user = User::withoutEvents(function () {
    return factory(User::class)->create();
