Laravel 5.5.5 Released With a New Route Fallback to Help Customize Your 404 Views

Laravel v5.5.5, was released September 19th and now includes a neat Route::fallback() method to help customize 404 views:

Another standout feature added is the @includeFirst blade directive. Now the following logic:

@if(view()->exists('custom-template'))
    @include('custom-template')
@else
    @include('default-template')
@endif

Can be replaced with:

@includeFirst(['custom-template', 'default-template'])
