Laravel Versions is a new project that features release dates and timelines for security and bug fixes for all versions of Laravel. It currently contains all publicly-known information about past and future versions of Laravel including the latest patch release, release date, date bugfixes end, date security fixes end, and whether it’s LTS.

I asked Matt Stauffer, the creator of this app, why he decided to build it and he said, “I needed this information in one canonical easy to find place, but also wanted it API accessible, and that didn’t exist.”

Some of the highlights of Laravel versions include:

  • It contains all publicly-known information about past and future versions of Laravel: latest patch release, release date, date bugfixes end, date security fixes end, and whether it’s LTS
  • All the information is in one place on the home page for easy browsing.
  • All the information can be accessed over the API
  • You can also get general info about specific major versions: laravelversions.com/7 or laravelversions.com/api/versions/7
  • You can also get info about your app’s specific version, including whether it’s getting security fixes, whether there’s a later patch version, etc. by visiting laravelversions.com/7.1.14 or laravelversions.com/api/versions/7.1.4

Laravel Versions is free and open-source, and Matt has a few more issues open for future ideas to make it even more useful; contributions welcome.
