Upgrade Guide: v6.x to v7.0

Overview

Warning

Please don't upgrade multiple versions at once (eg. from v5 to v7). Please upgrade one step at a time.

To get started with the upgrade process, follow the below steps:

1. In your composer.json file, change the statamic-rad-pack/runway version constraint to ^7.0:

"statamic-rad-pack/runway": "^7.0"

2. Then run:

composer update statamic-rad-pack/runway --with-dependencies

3. Next, please ensure you have cleared the route and view caches:

php artisan route:clear
php artisan view:clear

4. You're now running Runway v7. Please review this upgrade guide for information on changes which may affect your project.

Please test your project locally before deploying to production!

High impact changes

Statamic support

Affects all apps using Runway

The minimum version of Statamic is now 5. Please review the Statamic 5 upgrade guide.

PHP support

Affects apps using PHP 8.1

The minimum version of PHP is now 8.2. We highly recommend upgrading all the way to PHP 8.3.

Resource handles are now generated differently

Affects apps with Eloquent models, where the class name is multiple words

Runway will now generate resource handles slightly differently for Eloquent models, where the class name is multiple words.

For example: in v6, the resource handle for a model named BlogPost would have been blogpost. In v7, it will now be blog_post for easier readability.

If this affects you, you can either update all references to the old resource handle in your blueprints & templates, or manually override the handle of the resource in your Runway config:

// config/runway.php
 
BlogPost::class => [
'handle' => 'blogpost',
],
