With the newly launched Laravel 5.7, it provides a feature for email verification.

To include this feature, an "email_verified_at" timestamp column has to be added to the default users table migration that is included with the structure.

To assist newly registered users to verify their email, the "User" model should be marked with the "MustVerifyEmail" interface.

In Laravel 5.7 the resources/assets have been flattened into resources, hence eliminating parent directory assets.

With the new version of Laravel, now it starts supporting "callable array syntax" or "tuple notation" for controller action which will generate URLs.

Before 5.7


$url = action([UserController::class, 'index']);

But with Laravel 5.7, you may allow guests to go through authorization checks by declaring an “optional” type-hint or supplying a "null" default value for the user argument definition.
