Laravel 5.8.11 Released

The Laravel team released Laravel 5.8.11 yesterday with the ability to call date macros directly on the Date facade, a configurable lock on the local filesystem adapter, and the tracking of the exit code on scheduled event commands.

First , you can call macros directly on the Date facade:

Date::macro('example', function () {
return 'hello';
Date::example(); // hello

Next, the local filesystem adapter has a configurable lock parameter where before it was hard-coded to LOCK_EX.

Last, the scheduler Event class now has a public $exitCode property to track the exit status code of a scheduled command.

You can see the full list of fixes below, and the whole diff between 5.8.10 and 5.8.11 on GitHub. The full release notes for Laravel 5.8 are available in the GitHub 5.8 changelog:
