Laravel 9.24 Released


August 10th, 2022


The Laravel team released 9.24 with new artisan "db" commands, a new built-in validation rule, restoring soft-deleted models without any events, and more:

New database artisan commands

James Brooks and Joe Dixon contributed three new Artisan commands for databases: db:show, db:table, and db:monitor.

First, db:show gives you an overview of the database. It includes things like DB type, version, username, and more.

Next, the db:table command lets you see details about a table, including the number of rows, column details, indexes, and more.

Last, the db:monitor command lets you see things like the number of connections to the database.

Images are from Pull Request #43367, which has all the details about these commands.

A "does not end with" validation rule

@kichetof contributed a doesnt_end_with validation rule to check if a string doesn't end with a given substring. Here's an example from the pull request tests:

1// Validation passes
2$v = new Validator(
3 $trans,
4 ['x' => 'hello world'],
5 ['x' => 'doesnt_end_with:hello']
10// Validation fails
11$v = new Validator(
12 $trans,
13 ['x' => 'hello world'],
14 ['x' => 'doesnt_end_with:world']

Restore a "soft deleted" model without events

Venelin Iliev contributed a restoreQuietly() method that restores a soft-deleted model without raising any events.


Make Config repository macroable

Chris Kankiewicz contributed to adding the macroable trait to the Config repository so users can extend it in their apps:

1config()->macro('sayHello', function () {
2 return 'Hello, world';
5config()->sayHello(); // Hello, world
