Laravel V5.4.28 is now released image

The Laravel team released V5.4.28 yesterday and it includes a few new useful features.

The first of these is a new array_random helper that allows you do something like this:

array_random(['one', 'two', 'three']);
// "two"

Or you can specify the number of random items you’d like returned:

array_random(['one', 'two', 'three'], 2);
// array:2 [▼
0 => "one"
1 => "three"
]

Another new feature is an unless method on the query builder and Collections which allows you to make your code more expressive. For example, on a Collection:

collect()->when(! true, function () {});
// is the same as:
collect()->unless(true, function () {});

For all the other changes I’ve included the full change log below:
