Tech News: What Does the Recent Release of Laravel 5.5 Promises for Enterprise Web Development

The release of Laravel 5.5, a week ago, promises a lot to the web development sphere with updates, improvements, and several new features, and a long-term support. Laravel is one of the most popular frameworks for PHP. Following the illustrious MVC paradigm (Model View Controller), PHP developers leveraging this platform propagate a test-driven approach. The long-term support with the new release of this version simply means that it will be supported with bug fixes for two years and the elimination of gaps related to security for three years.
Some of the new Laravel features with this release worth mentioning are as follows:

1. Introducing Laravel Horizon
Laravel Horizon is the software tool to control and monitor the queues with a superior dashboard and a code-driven configuration. It monitors queues from a web dashboard to set notifications and alerts whenever something goes haywire or does not work as it is expected to.

2. Automatic Package Discovery
With Laravel 5.5, packages will be discovered automatically unlike in the earlier versions where several steps were required to install a package. Additionally, facades will be differentiated from authentic service providers and registered automatically.

3. API Resource Classes
With API resource classes, developing APIs will become easier as writing transformation for model to JSON not be needed anymore. This will be facilitated because API resource classes will transform the Eloquent model objects to their counter JSON representation.

4. Automatic Registration of Console Commands
Laravel 5.5 will employ the load method through which it will become easier to scan a directory, detect and register console commands that are present in it. The load method should be called in the commands method of the Kernel.

5. Sequential Job Chaining
With Job Chaining it can be specified that the jobs which are queued should be executed in what sequence. If a single job in the sequence fails, the execution will be stopped there and then, and no other job after that will be executed from the chain.

Some of the other new features and updates have been done in this version like Time Based Job Attempts, Validation Rule Objects, Trusted Proxy Integration, On-Demand Notifications, etc., that promises positive results for both developers and consequently, the enterprises into web development.
