Laravel 9.25 Released image

The Laravel team released 9.25 with a new string method, mass updating model timestamps with the query builder, and more:

Stringable "when not exactly"

Anjorin Damilare contributed a whenNotExactly string method that will execute a given callback if the string is not an exact match with the given value:

use Illuminate\Support\Str;
 
// Returns `Iron Man`
Str::of('Tony')
->whenNotExactly('Tony Stark', function ($stringable) {
return 'Iron Man';
}));
 
// Provide an optional default value if `false`
// Returns `Swing and a miss...!`
Str::of('Tony Stark')
->whenNotExactly('Tony Stark', function ($stringable) {
return 'Iron Man';
}, function ($stringable) {
return 'Swing and a miss...!';
}));

Model query touch() method to mass-update timestamps

Steve Bauman contributed a touch() method to the model query builder, which allows you to touch a model's timestamp with or without query constraints. It behaves like Model::touch():

// Mass updating the updated_at column
User::query()->touch();
 
// With query constraints
User::where('email', 'like', '%@company.com')->touch();
 
// Touching a specific column
Post::query()->touch('published_at');
