Laravel 6.14.0 Released image

The Laravel team released v6.14.0 this week with a new dispatchAfterResponse() method, macroable dispatcher, and a NoPendingMigrations event:

Dispatch After Response

Mohamed Said contributed a new method on the dispatcher to dispatch a job after the response is sent back to the client. The PR describes the use-case for this method:

This method makes the job run after the response is sent and before closing the connection. It simply registers a terminating callback that the application runs before it’s done with the request.

It can be useful to dispatch a short job instantly instead of sending it to a queue system.

Here’s a pseudo example:


Assert Jobs with an Empty Chain

Gergő D. Nagy contributed the assertPushedWithoutChain method on the QueueFake class, which enables testing an empty job chain:


No Pending Migrations Event

Wouter Rutgers contributed a NoMigrations migration event fires when there aren’t any migrations for an up or down. While probably not something you need to reach for often, here’s the event fired during an up migration without any pending migrations:

$this->fireMigrationEvent(new NoMigrations('up'));
