PHP 8 has been officially released! We've been hard at work behind the scenes to provide support for all our libraries so that upgrading to PHP 8 with Laravel is easy.
First, make sure you're at the latest version of Laravel 6, 7 or 8 to get PHP 8 support. Then make sure you're on the very latest version of any first-party package from Laravel like Passport, Cashier, Dusk, etc.
There are also a couple of commonly used dependencies you'll need to update in your
composer update to update other packages. Make sure to test your application before updating production. That's it! Enjoy PHP 8!
PS: We're still working on providing PHP 8 support for Scout and Nexmo Notification Channel. We expect this to land soon.
Here’s what we've been up to recently.
