There has been a lot of buzz lately about the latest release of Laravel 4.3. Many new features will be introduced in this new version, and it is all being covered over at Laracasts. This is showing to be a larger release than was previously anticipated.
Here are a few of the key features that will be introduced in this latest version:
- New directory structure
- Method Injection
- New and improved validation
- New File Generators
- Illuminate Contracts
- Route Caching
Now, I’m not too sure how I feel about the new file structure, already covered in one of Laracasts latest videos: https://laracasts.com/series/whats-new-in-laravel-4-3/episodes/1. I’m sure there’s good reasoning behind it; however, at first glance I’m not too thrilled about this.
There seem to be many other cool features popping up, so since Taylor Otwell has proven good in the past I’ll trust him on the change to the file structure and to all the new features. “Taylor”, thanks for continuing your awesome development on one of the greatest frameworks available.
