Laravel 8.75 Released image

The Laravel team released 8.75 with on-demand gate authorization, a fulltext index implementation for PostgreSQL, the ability to filter non-null array values, and the latest changes in the v8.x branch.

On-demand Gate Authorization

@Italo contributed on-demand gate authorization. This change allows the gate to permit or forbid a procedure by a condition, instead of using the gate to register a one-time ability or using verbose checks.

use Illuminate\Auth\Access\AuthorizationException;
use App\Models\Wallet;
 
// Before
$wallet = Wallet::find(1);
 
if ($wallet->overQuota()) {
throw new AuthorizationException("This action exceeds your cuota");
}
 
// After
$wallet = Wallet::find(1);
 
// Forbids an action...
Gate::forbid($wallet->overQuota(), "This action exceeds your cuota");
 
// or permits an action.
Gate::permit($wallet->underQuota(), "This action exceeds your quota");

Fulltext Index for PostgreSQL

Tobias Petry contributed PostgreSQL support for fulltext search. Currently, it supports a single column. Check out Pull Request #39875 for commentary around this feature and implementation details.

Filter Non-null Array Values

@Saya contributed an Arr::whereNotNull() method which filters out null values from an array:

Arr::whereNotNull([null, 0, false, '', null, []]);
// returns [0, false, '', []]

Added Scheduler Integration Tests

Chris Morrell contributed scheduler integration tests, including coverage for scheduled callbacks and scheduled commands. If you want to learn more, check out Pull Request #39862.
