Laravel 5.7.28 Released

The big news yesterday was the next major release—Laravel 5.8. Be sure to check the upgrade guide and the release details!

The Laravel team also released Laravel 5.7.28 yesterday with added support for Pheanstalk 4.x and configuration of token guard keys.

Laravel 5.7 apps may now require either Pheanstalk 4.x or 3.x—both are handled transparently through the BeanstalkdQueue queue driver. Starting in Laravel 5.8, Pheanstalk 4.x is a requirement.

Users can configure the token guard input and storage keys in the auth guard configuration with the input_key and storage_key configuration keys.

Lastly, with the release of Laravel 5.8, bug fixes for Laravel 5.7 will end on March 4th, 2019 and security fixes will continue until September 4th, 2019.
