What Is Laravel?

Laravel is an open-source PHP framework that is reliable and simple to comprehend. It follows a model-view-controller design pattern. Laravel uses the elements of various frameworks that aid in creating an online application. The web application that is created is more organized and practical.

Laravel provides a wide range of functions, including the essential capabilities of PHP frameworks such as CodeIgniter, Yii, and other programming languages, such as Ruby on Rails. Laravel comes with a rich array of features that accelerate web development.

If you’re familiar with Core PHP and Advanced PHP, Laravel will make your job easier. It will save you time if you plan to create a site completely from scratch. Additionally, a site built using Laravel is secure and guards against numerous web-based attacks. Below read about what’s new in laravel 9.

What’s New Laravel 9

Laravel 9 release date was scheduled to be September 2022, and the Laravel 9 release was delayed until January 2022 (and later in February 2022), making this the very first long-term support (LTS) version to launch after the release cycle of 12 months. This delay has many reasons that include but is not limited to the following:

  1. Laravel uses a variety of community-driven projects around the nine Symfony libraries. But, Symfony planned to release version 6.0 in November 2022. This delay will allow the Laravel team to include this latest version of Symfony in Laravel 9.
  2. The delay will allow the team to examine how Laravel interacts with the latest version of Symfony for two months. It also allows them time to make any necessary modifications or bugs.
  3. Finally, delaying Laravel 9 puts the Laravel team to be prepared for the yearly releases. After the Symfony release, the team will have an additional two months of ramp-up time.

ABC offers you to develop your services or website in laravel’s latest version, as we are the reputed PHP and laravel development company.

Laravel 9 Features

Laravel 9 Features

1. Minimum PHP Requirement

Laravel 9 installation requires the most current versions of PHP 8, PHPUnit 9, and several other prerequisites specified within the instructions. Laravel, as a framework, relies on a number of community-driven and Symfony 9 libraries. Symfony planned to release Symfony v6.0 by November 2022, which forced the Laravel team to delay the release of Laravel v9.

The PHP 8 requirement is because Laravel 9 exclusively depends on Symfony’s newest v6.0 release, which requires PHP 8. Check out the benchmarks for new PHP 8 features, including the Just-In-Time compiler and constructor property promotion.

2. Anonymous Stub Migration

Laravel allows you to make an anonymous stub migration the default option when you execute the popular migration command:

PHP artisan make: migration

The anonymous stub feature was added within Laravel 8.37 to resolve issues with Github issues. The stub-migration feature can eliminate conflicts between the class names of the migration.

3. New Query Builder Interface

With the latest Laravel version, type hinting is extremely reliable for Refactoring, static analysis, and code completion within the development environments because there is no shared interface or inheritance between Query\Builder, Eloquen\tBuilder, as well as Eloquent\Relation.

But it is possible to use Laravel 9, and developers can benefit from the brand new query builder interface that allows type hinting, Refactoring, and static analyses.

4. PHP 8 String Functions

Because Laravel 9 targets PHP 8, Laravel added this Pull Request, suggesting utilizing the most up to date PHP 8 string functions. These functions incorporate the use of str_contains(), str_starts_with(), and str_ends_with() internally in the IlluminateSupportStr class.

Some of Laravel 9’s features and improvements can be seen below and offer a hint of what’s to come. Some bugs will surely be fixed, and other new features will also be implemented.
