Laravel 7.11 Released


May 14th, 2020


The Laravel team released v7.11.0 with support for email Unicode validation, a split() “stringable” method, two “or where in raw” query build methods, and all the latest updates to the 7.x branch.


@mpyw contributed email validation with the FILTER_FLAG_EMAIL_UNICODE flag. This is useful to allow unicode in the local part of the email, but not the domain part:

    'email' => 'email:filter_unicode'

Note: the email:filter rule now disallows Unicode in both the local and domain part, and email:rfc allows them in both.

Add split() to Stringable class

Nicolas Perraut contributed a split() method to Stringable as a proxy to preg_split() to allow splitting by regex instead of explode():

Str::of('hypertext language, programming')

Illuminate\Support\Collection {#3523
  all: [

Add “or where in raw” clause for integers

@jrking4 contributed the orWhereIntegerInRaw() and orWhereIntegerNotInRaw() query builder methods for the “or where in raw” conditions:

    ->where('id', '=', 1)
    ->orWhereIntegerInRaw('id', ['1a', 2])
