Your Action Item: Upgrade Laravel & PHP if necessary, bump minimum requirements in your
Enum V3 Upgrade
The underlying Enum package has been upgraded from 2.3 to 3.0.
The only change is that
__default const is now uppercase
__DEFAULT in order to fully comply with
the PSR-1 standard.
Your Action Item: Search for
__default Enum constants in your project and rename them to
PHP Interface Changes
Most interfaces have been updated to define return types on the language level.
Your Action Item: Search your application for classes that directly implement these interfaces, and updated them t* match the new signatures.
Complete list of changes:
- Interface Changes in Contracts v2.0
- Interface Changes in Category v2.0
- Interface Changes in Channel v2.0
- Interface Changes in Order v2.0
- Interface Changes in Product v2.0
- Interface Changes in Properties v2.0
The Properties module stores property values as strings in the db, but can casts them to their given types (int, float, bool, etc).
Until v1.2 the casting has happend when you called
$propertyValue->getValue(). However, if you
$propertyValue->value field on the same object, you just got the string as it was
stored in the DB. To resolve this confusion and make thing straightforward, the following breaking
changes have been applied:
getCastedValue()method has been added to the PropertyValue interface
getValue()method has been renamed to
getCastedValue()in the PropertyValue model
As a consequence:
getValuemethod on the PropertyValue model no longer exists
- Accessing the
valueproperty on the model works the same way, no change there.
- If you want to get the casted value of the object, call the
Your Action Item: Search
getValue() method calls on property value objects in your code and
depending on your use case change them either to
Admin Panel Changes
appshell:super artisan command has been renamed to
Admin Panel was the most deeply refactored area with the release of 2.0. If you're not using and especially not extending the Admin Panel, then you don't have anything to do of course.
You definitely need to check the upgrade guide if your application does any of the following items with the Admin Panel:
- overrides views,
- adds extra assets to the layout,
- defines new permissions,
- adds CRUD entries,
- adds menu items.
Your Action Item: Admin Panel is built on top of AppShell, go to the AppShell 2.0 Upgrade Guide and follow the steps.
Don't worry about the external link, AppShell was written by the same people as Vanilo ;)
