New Laravel UI

The frontend scaffolding provided with Laravel 5.x releases is now extracted into a separate laravel/UI Composer package. This also allows first-party UI scaffolding to be iterated on separately from the primary framework.

If you also want the Traditional Bootstrap/Vue/ scaffolding, you will also run the following command:

Semantic Versioning

Laravel release notes clarify semantic versioning going forward in Laravel 6.0 and beyond:

The Laravel framework (laravel/framework) package now also follows the semantic versioning standard. This makes the framework consistent with the other first-party Laravel packages which already followed this versioning standard. The Laravel release cycle will remain unchanged.

Ignition Error Page

Laravel 6.0 now ships with Ignition—a new open-source exception page for Laravel—created by Freek Van der Herten and Marcel Pociot.

Improved Authorization Responses

Previously it was difficult to provide custom error messages around authorization to end-users. Laravel 6 introduces a Gate::inspect method which also provides the authorization policy’s response:

Job Middleware

You define middleware by specifying a middleware() method on the job class which returns an array of middleware objects. From the pull request, here’s an example:

the middleware class:

Lazy Collections

Lazy collections are also a game-changer for working with extensive collections of data, including Eloquent model collections.

A new Illuminate\Support\LazyCollection class leverages PHP’s generators to keep memory low while working with large datasets. Check out Lazy Collections documentation for more details on this impressive new feature!

Eloquent Subquery Enhancements

Subqueries allow you to run nested queries within another database query. This can also be a powerful way to retrieve ancillary model data, without making any additional database queries.

when it’s not possible to do via a relationship.

Moreover, you can also use subqueries in order by statements, where statements, and also other database clauses.
