Over on the official Laravel YouTube channel, Christoph Rumpel walks through new features that landed in this week’s Laravel 11 release:

Laravel 11 is Here by Josh Cirre

Josh Cirre’s video Laravel 11 is Here (and I'm so excited) is another excellent roundup of high-level features released with Laravel 11:

Upgrade to Laravel 11 with Shift

You can automate the Upgrade of Laravel 10.x to Laravel 11.x with Laravel Shift. This is an amazing way to speed up the upgrade process and get those existing Laravel applications running on the latest version of Laravel.

Laravel News creator Eric Barnes demonstrates upgrading laravel-news.com to Laravel 11 using the amazing Shift service:

The Laravel 11 shift includes streamlining your configuration files to their true customizations, consolidating service providers, getting your app to reflect the Laravel 11 application structure updates, and more.

Check out the Shift demo video for some additional insight.

Laravel 11 Documentation Prologue

Each Laravel release contains a Prologue section, which contains Release Notes, an Upgrade Guide, and a Contribution Guide. Using Laravel Shift is the best way to upgrade, but reading through the release notes and upgrade guide is an excellent way to familiarize yourself with changes to the latest Laravel version.

A quick way to stay current with Laravel releases is the laravelversions.com website (and their APIs) so that you always know where to go to find dates for release, end of bug fixes, and end of security updates for Laravel & PHP. Hat tip to Matt Stauffer, who helps maintain laravelversions.com and phpreleases.com.

At the time of release, here’s an updated support policy:
