New Session Input Assertion Method in Laravel 5.8.30 image

The Laravel team released v5.8.30 with a new assertSessionHasInput() method along with all the latest changes and fixes. This is a rather large release, so be sure to check out the full changelog for details.

Related: Laravel v6 Announcement!

First up, two new testing methods were added for convenience: option() and optionJson() for making HTTP OPTION requests:

$this->option('/example');
$this->optionJson('/api/example');

Next, new migration methods are available for UUID morphs which takes care of creating the columns necessary for the type, the UUID field, and index:

// UUID Morphs
$table->uuidMorphs('imageable');
 
// Or nullable UUID Morphs
$table->nullableUuidMorphs('imageable');

The MailgunTransport class now has the capability of setting the endpoint if you need to switch domains and API endpoints:

$mailTransport = app()->make('mailer')->getSwiftMailer()->getTransport();
$mailTransport->setDomain('yourdomain.com');
$mailTransport->setEndpoint('api.eu.mailgun.net');

The WEBP mime is now valid in the built-in image validation rule.

Next, a new assertSessionHasInput() test method was added to the TestResponse class. With the new method you can avoid writing test assertions based on the internal name of flashed session data:

// Without the new method...
$response->assertSessionHas('_old_input', [
'connection_id' => $connection->id,
'repository' => $repository,
'source_branch' => $branch,
]);
 
// As of v5.8.30 :)
$response->assertSessionHasInput([
'connection_id' => $connection->id,
'repository' => $repository,
'source_branch' => $branch,
]);

Next, support for custom Redis driver is possible. Check out the pull request #29275 to learn more about the details.

And the last new feature is column collation support in Postgres:

Schema::create('users', function (Blueprint $table) {
$table->string('name')->collation('nb_NO.utf8');
});

Check out the columns section (under “Column Modifiers”) in the official docs for details.

You can see the full list of fixes below, and the whole diff between 5.8.29 and 5.8.30 on GitHub. The full release notes for Laravel 5.8 are available in the GitHub 5.8 changelog:
