Laravel 9.28 Released

The Laravel team released 9.28 with console signal traps, test view data assertions, prevent silently discarding fillable values, and more:

Add view data assertions to TestView

Andrew Brown contributed three TestView assertion methods to assert view data:

$view = $this->view('welcome', [
'name' => 'Taylor',
'email' => ''
$view->assertViewHas('name'); // true
$view->assertViewHas('name', 'Tyler'); // false
$view->assertViewHasAll(['name', 'email']); // true
'name' => 'Taylor',
'email' => '',
]); // true
$view->assertViewMissing('nonda'); // true
$view->assertViewMissing('name'); // false

Get the intended session URL from the redirector

D. Nagy Gergő contributed a getIntendedUrl() method on the Redirector class to both get and set the intended redirect URL:

$redirect->getIntendedUrl(); //

Eloquent mode to prevent silently discarding fills for attributes

Ralph J. Smit contributed a model method to prevent discarding fills even if a model is not totally guarded. This is useful if you work on a Laravel codebase that uses fillable fields, but you also don't want to silently discard data passed.

This model is toggleable in a few ways; for example, you could use the environment to only trigger an exception in non-production environments:

// Only prevent in non-production environments
! app()->isProduction()

Signal traps

Nuno Maduro contributed the introduction of signal traps that allows you to catch process signals and execute code when they occur:

$this->trap(SIGINT, function () {
// End the command's job gracefully ...
// E.g: clean created files, etc ...
$this->continue = false;
// trap multiple signals
$this->trap([SIGTERM, SIGQUIT], function ($signal) {
$this->running = false;
dump($signal); // SIGTERM or SIGQUIT

Support passing Enumerable objects to Stringable methods

Erik Gaal contributed the ability to pass enumerable objects to Stringable helper functions:

// Before
Str::remove($months->toArray(), $someString);
// After with an Enumerable object
Str::remove($months, $someString);
