Laravel 5.7.9 Released

Laravel 5.7.9 Released

Laravel 5.7.9 was released on Tuesday with some changes and fixes, along with a new 401 exception view, new session assertion methods, and PendingResourceRegistration is macroable.

First, a new assertion in the TestResponse class called assertSessionDoesntHaveErrors() can be used to ensure that the session doesn’t include an error for a given field:



You can also use the assertSessionHasNoErrors() assertion to verify that the session doesn’t have any errors.

Next, a new 401.blade.php for unauthorized 401 responses, with some updated verbiage for the 403 template—changing the text from “Unauthorized” to “Forbidden.”

The PendingResourceRegistration class is now macroable. An example of a definition and usage (as provided from the pull request) could be as follows:


// Macro defintion
PendingResourceRegistration::macro('can', function(string $permission) {

// Usage
Route::resource('users', UsersController::class)->can('administerUsers');
