A new missing() callback for resource routes and a StringEncrypter interface are now in Laravel 8.33 image

The Laravel team released 8.33 with the ability to define a missing() callback for resource routes, a StringEncrypter interface, and the latest changes in the 8.x branch:

"Missing" Option For Resource Routes

@LuttaMustache contributed a missing() method to register a callback on resource routes that result in a 404:

Route::resource('users', UsersController::class)
->missing(function () {
return response('missing', 404);
});

StringEncrypter Interface

Marco Aurélio Deleu contributed a StringEncrypter interface for encrypting/decrypting strings without serialization. While most people won't need to worry about this, here's what the interface looks like in case you need a custom implementation:

namespace Illuminate\Contracts\Encryption;
 
interface StringEncrypter
{
public function encryptString($value);
public function decryptString($value);
}

See pull request #36578 and #36566 for more details.

Require a Correct Password to Rehash It

Matthew Boynes contributed a fix where logging out of other devices doesn't check the password. It rehashes, inadvertently changing the user's password. With this fix, the session guard will now check the password and throw an exception in a mismatch case. Check out Pull Request #36608 for more details if you're curious.

Nullable Columns with AsArrayObject and AsCollection

Tom Irons contributed the ability to have null database columns using the AsArrayObject and AsCollection casts. Previously, a nullable database column used with one of these casts would cause an undefined error when accessing an attribute.

Taylor mentioned these new casts in his talk at Laracon Online 2021 and demoed how useful they can be in addition to the previous casts for working with JSON data. We also covered AsArrayObject and AsCollection Custom Casts when they were introduced in Laravel 8.28 if you want to learn more.
