Laravel 7.23 Released

Laravel 7.23 Released

The Laravel team released v7.23.0 with dynamic slot directive names, plain-text notification support, new query build methods, and the latest new features, fixes, and changes in the 7.x branch:

Dynamic Slot Name Support

Lennart Carstens-Behrens contributed support for dynamic slot names using the a colon (:) prefix:

<x-slot :name="$foo">
    {{-- ... --}}
</x-slot>

Plain Mail in Notifications

Julius Kiekbusch contributed the ability to define a plain-text email notification. Here’s an example mailer from the pull request tests:

class TestMailNotificationWithPlain extends Notification
{
    public function via($notifiable)
    {
        return [MailChannel::class];
    }

    public function toMail($notifiable)
    {
        return (new MailMessage)
            ->view('html')
            ->text('plain');
    }
}

Using Guzzle’s ‘sink’ Option With Http Fakes

Sjors Ottjes contributed support for using Guzzle’s sink option with the Laravel HTTP client fakes. While using the Http client normally, the sink option already works. However, with Http::fake(), it stops working. A test from the pull request might better illustrate how this works:

$this->factory->fakeSequence()->push('abc123');

$destination = __DIR__ . '/fixtures/sunk.txt';

if (file_exists($destination)) {
    unlink($destination);
}

$this->factory->withOptions(['sink' => $destination])->get('https://example.com');

$this->assertFileExists($destination);
$this->assertSame('abc123', file_get_contents($destination));

unlink($destination);

New Query Builder Methods

Ernestas Kvedaras contributed four new query build methods:

  • whereBetweenColumns
  • orWhereBetweenColumns
  • whereNotBetweenColumns
  • orWhereNotBetweenColumns

These methods “have the same idea as whereColumn, but for whereBetween.”
