Laravel 10.37.0

Lately, Laravel unveiled its latest version 10.37.0 with few notable features such as the ability to assert multiple errors on a field, the capability to store batch metadata in DynamoDB, and many more. These enhancements will bring more design opportunities for Laravel applications.

Let’s explore the new additions in the latest release Laravel 10.37.0.

Noticeable latest features shipped along with Laravel 10.37.0

Storing batches in DynamoDB

It is a contributed feature. Storing batch meta information in DynamoDB in the place of the relational database. Configure your application to utilize DynamoDB by applying the below config in queue.php file

'batching' => [
  'driver' => env('QUEUE_FAILED_DRIVER', 'dynamodb'),
  'key' => env('AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID'),
  'secret' => env('AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY'),
  'region' => env('AWS_DEFAULT_REGION', 'us-east-1'),
  'table' => 'job_batches',
],

Documentation will help you to understand complete setup details. Moreover, check Pull Request #49169 for implementation details.

Assert Multiple Error Messages

This contributed feature can assert a list of errors on a field utilizing the assertInvalid() method:

// Before, separate assertion calls are required
$response->assertInvalid(['email' => 'The email field must be a string.']);
$response->assertInvalid(['email' => 'The email field must be at least 5 characters.']);
// As of Laravel 10.37 you can now do:
$response->assertInvalid([
  'email' => [
    'The email field must be a string.',
    'The email field must be at least 5 characters.',
  ],
]);

Add ‘engine()’ method to Blueprint

The engine() method helps define migration schemas and it is again a contributed feature.

// Previously
Schema::table('foo', function (Blueprint $table) {
  $table->engine = 'InnoDB';
  // ...
});
// Using the new engine() method
Schema::table('foo', function (Blueprint $table) {
  $table->engine('InnoDB');
  // ...
});

Get the indexes and foreign keys of a table

getIndexes() and getForeignKeys methods to get the indexes and foreign keys of a given table schema.

Schema::getIndexes();
Schema::getForeignKeys();

This contributed method ‘getIndexes()’ returns an array with different keys like ‘name’, ‘column’, ‘type’, ‘unique’, and ‘primary’. And the ‘getForeignKeys()’ method returns an array for each foreign key with ‘name’, ‘column’, ‘foreign_schema’, ‘foreign_table’, ‘foreign_columns’, ‘on_update’, and ‘on_delete’.

Pull Request #49204 and Pull Request #49264 for implementation details and examples.
