Laravel 9.10 Released

Laravel 9.10 Released image

The Laravel team released 9.10 with a findOr() Eloquent method, a new command assertion, retrieve input as a Stringable instance, and more:

Before Refreshing Database Function

Rok Sprogar contributed a beforeRefreshingDatabase to the RefreshDatabase trait. This allows you to run code before the database starts refreshing:

class DataExportTest extends TestCase
{
use RefreshDatabase;
 
protected $seed = true;
 
protected function beforeRefreshingDatabase()
{
$this->artisan('db:wipe --database another-database-connection');
}
 
// ...
}

Does Not Expect Output Command Assertion

Markus Hebenstreit contributed a doesntExpectOutputToContain Command assertion method which is self-explanitory:

Artisan::command('contains', function () {
$this->line('My name is Taylor Otwell');
});
 
$this->artisan('contains')
->doesntExpectOutputToContain('Taylor Otwell');

Eloquent "findOr" Method

Jess Archer contributed a findOr() method to the Eloquent builder and relations. This method matches the existing firstOr() methods:

User::findOr(1, fn () => throw new RuntimeException);
User::findOr(1, fn () => abort(403));
User::findOr(1, fn () => 'return something');
User::findOr(1, ['columns'], fn () => '...');
 
// Also works with relations
$user->posts()->findOr(1, fn () => '...');

Customizable Compiled Extension

Taylor Otwell contributed a configurable compiled view extension that is customizable via the view configuration when passed into the blade compiler:

new BladeCompiler(
$app['files'],
$app['config']['view.compiled'],
$app['config']->get('view.relative_hash', false) ? $app->basePath() : '',
$app['config']->get('view.cache', true),
$app['config']->get('view.compiled_extension', 'php'),
);

Support for "IS" and "IS NOT" PostgreSQL Operators

Markus Koch contributed support for is and is not operators when using PostgreSQL. See Pull Request #42123 for details.

Retrieve Input from the Request as Stringable

Cameron Wilby and Taylor Otwell contributed the ability to retreive input from the request as a Stringable instance:

$name = $request->string('name');
// or
$name = $request->str('name');

Append and Prepend Jobs to Existing Chain

Jan-Oliver Pantel contributed prependToChain() and appendToChain methods to append and prepend jobs:

The use case for that is whenever a job within a chain want's [sic] to enqueue jobs onto it's own chain without the need to create a new one and wait for successful execution of the "child chain".

This is technically already possible since all the needed properties and methods are public. However having formalized functions for that makes for a better DX.

See Pull Request #42138 for details.
