New Blade Directives Coming to Laravel 5.6

Laravel 5.6 is coming with two new form directives. One for cross side scripting and another for HTTP method input.

In Laravel 5.5 we , to create a hidden csrf field and a spoofed http method, we were write as given below

This will help your laravel application to protect against the csrf attacks.Although if you want to submit the form successfully, you must include a hidden csrf filed.

Laravel 5.6 Will Remove the Artisan Optimize Command

Another change in Laravel 5.6 is that artisan optimize command will be removed. This command is already deprecated in Laravel 5.5 and has removed Laravel 5.5

But you should wait until laravel gives you time to update your build script and composer.json files. Composer.json has no longer reference of optimize command in post-install-cmd and post-update-cmd scripts. It is still define in Laravel 5.5 but does nothing.
