Laravel Upgrading from Old to New Version

Posted by:wwws onDecember 24, 2018

Laravel 5.7 continues the improvements made in Laravel 5.6 by introducing Laravel Nova, optional email verification to the authentication scaffolding, support for guest users in authorization gates and policies, console testing improvements, Symfony dump-serverintegration, localizable notifications, and a variety of other bug fixes and usability improvements.

Time take to Upgrade :

Estimated Upgrade Time: 10 – 15 Minutes

Updating Dependencies :

  • Update your laravel/framework dependency to 5.7.* in your composer.json file.
  • If you are using Laravel Passport, you should update your laravel/passport dependency to ^7.0 in your composer.json file.
  • Of course, don’t forget to examine any 3rd party packages consumed by your application and verify you are using the proper version for Laravel 5.7 support.

Versioning Scheme

Laravel’s versioning scheme maintains the following convention: paradigm.major.minor. Major framework releases are released every six months (February and August), while minor releases may be released as often as every week. Minor releases should never contain breaking changes. When referencing the Laravel framework or its components from your application or package, you should always use a version constraint such as 5.7.*, since major releases of Laravel do include breaking changes. However, we strive to always ensure you may update to a new major release in one day or less.
