Laravel 8.15 Released image

The Laravel team released 8.15 with DBAL 3.0 support, and the latest changes in the 8.x branch:

MariaDB Dump Support

@verebelyicsaba contributed support for MariaDB in the schema dump command. Previously, the command was not working as expected with MariaDB.

Parse Named Validation Rule Parameters

@ragulka contributed making the validator parseNamedParameters() public for use in custom validation rules:

Validator::extend('custom_rule', function($attribute, $value, $parameters, $validator) {
// the parameters are something like ['country=US', 'level=pro'],
// but we want ['country' => 'US', 'level' => 'pro'] instead
$namedParams = $validator->parseNamedParameters($parameters));
});
 
Validator::make([
'some_field' => 'custom_rule:country=US,level=pro'
], $data);

Stringable classBasename Method

James Kingsley contributed a convenience method to the Stringable class in order to get a class base name:

// New classBasename()
Str::of(static::class)
->classBasename()
->kebab();
 
// Instead of
Str::of(static::class)
->afterLast('\\')
->kebab();

Testing File Upload Content

Nuno Maduro contributed to the possibility of testing the file upload content while checking if a file exists:

// Before
Storage::disk('reports')->assertExists('foo.csv');
$this->assertSame('my;csv;content', Storage::disk('reports')->read('foo.csv'));
 
// After
Storage::disk('reports')->assertExists('foo.csv', 'my;csv;content');

DBAL 3.0 Support

Dries Vints and Graham Campbell contributed support for doctrine/dbal 3.0.0, the next major release of the DBAL package. The Doctrine DBAL package brings PHP 8 support, focuses on API improvements, and removes deprecated APIs. Huge thanks to all those involved in supporting DBAL and integrating it with Laravel 8.
