The plan is for Laravel 8 to be released on September 8th, and in anticipation, Taylor has been hinting at some of the new features that will be coming to the framework. Let’s take a look at some of these.

php artisan serve enhancements

You will no longer have to manually restart php artisan serve if you update your “.env” file. The changes will be read in, and you can just continue working.

app/Models directory

This feature came to life after a Twitter poll a few months back where Taylor asked where people like to put their “Models” Either in app/ or app/Models. The latter won out, and the Laravel 8 skeleton will include an app/Models directory by default.
