It’s an exciting week for Laravel. The Laracon 2015 sites launched yesterday and today Laravel 5 has been tagged and is now officially released. Along with this release the home page features a brand new design.
This version features more than 22 new features and I covered them here on Laravel News last week. Check out all the new Laravel 5 features to see what’s in store.
I’d like to send a huge thank you to Taylor Otwell and everyone who contributed to this release. The community is stronger than ever and I’m hoping I get to personally meet many of you over the next year.
Be sure and join the weekly Laravel Newsletter to stay up to date on everything. I’m positive that an abundance of packages, tutorials, and applications will be coming out.
