Laravel 7.3 Released


March 26th, 2020

Laravel 7.3 Released

The Laravel team released v7.3.0 yesterday with the ability to use ^4.0 versions of ramsey/uuid. Since the release of Laravel 7.2, a few patch releases are available that we’ll briefly cover:

Ability to use Ramsey UUID V4

Laravel 7.3 adds the possibility to use ^4.0 of ramsey/uuid, but still supports v3.7 as well. The composer dependency is now ^3.7|^4.0.

Component Fixes

Laravel 7.2.2 fixes a few blade component issues. Notably, the make:component command now supports subdirectories:

php artisan make:component Navigation/Item
# previously creates the following:
# View/Components/Navigation/Item.php
# views/components/item.blade.php
# Now creates them as expected:
# View/Components/Navigation/Item.php
# views/components/navigation/item.blade.php

Fix Route Naming Issue

Laravel 7 introduced route caching speed improvements, but with that have been a few issues with apps in-the-wild. Laravel 7.2.1 fixed a route naming issue with cache; you should upgrade to the latest 7.x release to get the newest routing fixes.

It’s important to note that you should ensure the uniqueness of route names, as routes with duplicate names can “cause unexpected behavior in multiple areas of the framework.”
