Use a Closure with updateOrInsert() in Laravel 11.10

This week, the Laravel team released v11.10, with the ability to pass a callback to updateOrInsert, support for soft-deleted models with explicit route model binding, and more.

Allow Passing a Callback to updateOrInsert()

Mark Eriksson contributed the ability to pass a callback as the second argument to the updateOrInsert() query builder method. Within the callback, the boolean $exists variable is passed so you can write logic to update specific columns based on whether the record exists or not:

  ['user_id' => $user_id],
  function ($exists) use ($data) {
    if ($exists) {
      return [
        'name' => $data['name'],
        'email' => $data['email'],

    return [
      'name' => $data['name'],
      'email' => $data['email'],
      'optional_column' => $data['foobar'],

See Pull Request #51566 for full implementation details.

Support Soft-deleted Models When Using Explicit Route Model Binding

Graham Bradley added support for soft-deleted models when using explicit route model binding:

This PR allows the resolution of soft-deleted models when using Laravel's explicit route-model binding feature.

It allows developers to use explicit route-model binding without having to customise the resolution logic when dealing with soft-deleted models. To do so it uses the same withTrashed() method as implicit binding.

// Before
Route::get('/users/{user}', ...);
Route::bind('user', function (string $value) {
    return User::where('id', $value)->withTrashed()->firstOrFail();

// After
Route::get('/users/{user}', ...)->withTrashed();
Route::model('user', User::class);

See Pull Request #51651 for full implementation details.

Allow Setting Resend API Key in Mailer Config

@riasvdv contributed setting the Resend API key directly in the mailer config instead of just the services config. See Pull Request #51618 for more details.
