The Laravel team released 9.35 with an exciting new alternate mailable syntax, an Eloquent "strict mode" feature, and more.

Alternate mailable syntax

Taylor Otwell contributed an alternate mailable syntax to works by returning "slim value objects that specify the content and attributes of the mailable"

Here's an example from his pull request description:

namespace App\Mail;
 
use Illuminate\Bus\Queueable;
use Illuminate\Contracts\Queue\ShouldQueue;
use Illuminate\Mail\Mailable;
use Illuminate\Mail\Mailables\Address;
use Illuminate\Mail\Mailables\Attachment;
use Illuminate\Mail\Mailables\Content;
use Illuminate\Mail\Mailables\Envelope;
use Illuminate\Queue\SerializesModels;
 
class InvoicePaid extends Mailable
{
use Queueable, SerializesModels;
 
/**
* Create a new message instance.
*
* @return void
*/
public function __construct()
{
//
}
 
/**
* Get the message envelope.
*
* @return \Illuminate\Mail\Mailables\Envelope
*/
public function envelope()
{
return new Envelope(
subject: 'Invoice Paid',
cc: [new Address('foo@example.com', 'Example Name')],
tags: [],
metadata: [],
);
}
 
/**
* Get the message content definition.
*
* @return \Illuminate\Mail\Mailables\Content
*/
public function content()
{
return new Content(
view: 'html-view-name',
text: 'text-view-name',
);
}
 
/**
* Get the attachments for the message.
*
* @return \Illuminate\Mail\Mailables\Attachment[]
*/
public function attachments()
{
return [
Attachment::fromPath('/path/to/file'),
];
}
}

The traditional way of defining mailables using build() will not be removed. I like how the above example is obvious what is happening using PHP 8's named arguments.

Eloquent "strict" mode

Chris Morrell and Taylor Otwell collaborated on an Eloquent strict mode, which enables the following:

  • No lazy loading
  • Exceptions when assigning non-fillable attributes
  • Exceptions accessing attributes that weren't retrieved or didn't exist

Ideally, you'll use strict mode in development by adding the following to the boot() method of a registered service provider:

Model::shouldBeStrict();

The shouldBeStrict() method is a shortcut for enabling all of the following:

Model::preventLazyLoading();
Model::preventSilentlyDiscardingAttributes();
Model::preventsAccessingMissingAttributes();

Load trashed models with resource routes

Andrew Brown contributed the ability to load trashed models with resource routes using the following routing syntax:

// All endpoints
Route::resource('users', UserController::class)->withTrashed();
 
// Only `show`
Route::resource('users', UserController::class)->withTrashed(['show']);
