Laravel version 5.1 is the first LTS (long term support) Laravel release. This means bug fixes are provided for 2 years and security fixes are provided for 3 years.
This is important because the applications you build today will still be supported by the framework tomorrow.
Why This Book
My previous book on Laravel, Getting Stuff Done with Laravel 4 was well received.
Now that Laravel 5.1 is available, I briefly thought of updating my previous book to work with Laravel 5.1. The new version of Laravel implements big changes from Laravel 4, but Laravel 5.1 is mostly backwards compatible.
But the Getting Stuff Done with Laravel 4 book isn’t really a manual covering every aspect of Laravel 4. It’s a process and design book. The principles discussed within that book still are valid in Laravel 5.1, even if the implementation may vary slightly.
Instead of updating my previous book, I’ve created a new book, Laravel 5.1 Beauty, to highlight some of the new features. This book is bigger and better than Getting Stuff Done with Laravel 4.
GitHub and the Blog
I’m publishing Laravel 5.1 Beauty simultaneously, as it is being built, on my web site
LaravelCoding.com and on Leanpub.
