What’s New in Laravel 8

Laravel 8 is now released and includes many new features including Laravel Jetstream, a models directory, model factory classes, migration squashing, rate-limiting improvements, time testing helpers, dynamic blade components, and many more features.

Before we jump into the new features, we’d like to point out that starting with version 6, Laravel now follows semver and will release a new major version every six months. You can see how the release process works here.
