Laravel Homestead Version 6 Released

Laravel Homestead Version 6 Released

The Laravel Homestead project just tagged the release of version 6.0.0 along with Settler 3.0. Homestead 6 now supports multiple versions of PHP on the same virtual machine. For developers maintaining apps on different versions of PHP, this change will make it easier to use Homestead.

The available PHP versions include 5.6, 7.0, and 7.1. If you want a site to use 5.6, you would specify the following in the Homestead.yaml file:

sites:
  - map: homestead.app
    to: /home/vagrant/Code/Laravel/public
    php: "5.6"

If the php key is omitted the site will default to PHP 7.1, so things will continue to work as expected for existing sites.

You can get the full details from the 6.0 release notes.
