Laravel 8.19 Released image

The Laravel team released 8.19 yesterday with job encryption, delaying queue jobs until after a transaction, a schedule:list artisan command, and the latest changes in the 8.x branch:

Delay Queue Jobs During a DB Transaction

Mohamed Said contributed the ability to delay queue jobs until after all database transactions are committed:

$user = User::create(...);

You can also configure queue connections with the after_commit boolean to make this behavior the default. In the case of rollbacks, jobs are discarded.

Add has() method to ComponentAttributeBag

Erik C. Forés contributed a new method to determine if a given attribute is present on a component, which returns a boolean:

@if ($attributes->has('class'))
<div>Class Attribute Present</div>

Add schedule:list Command

Andrew Brown contributed a schedule:list command to list out scheduled task details. This feature is inspired by the ThenPingMe thenpingme:schedule command.

php artisan schedule:list

Introducing Job Encryption

Mohamed Said contributed to the introduction of queue job encryption, providing a UsesEncryption interface that will encrypt the command inside the payload and decrypt it when running CallQueueHandler.

Encrypting the command payload hides the job class properties which may hold sensitive information (API keys, passwords, personal information, etc…).

For more details, check out Pull Request #35527.
