Another good month here at Backpack. Let's dig into it:


Pedro has been on 🔥 yet another month:

  • All our packages now support Laravel 11. Want to upgrade to it? Go ahead! There is no upgrade guide needed on Backpack, we've gone through a lot of trouble to add non-breaking support, so you don't have to worry about anything.
  • CRUD - 9 bug fixes
  • PRO - 3 bug fixes
  • Editable Columns - 2 bug fixes
  • Calendar Operation - 4 bug fixes
  • Theme-Tabler - 4 bug fixes
  • a few other fixes to our other packages

New Packages

Translation Manager

If you build multi-language websites or apps for clients, boy... do we have news for you! You can now create your entire app in one language (English, let's face it), then ask your admin to translate it. That's it, it's that simple!

All of your lang files are now translatable from a simple web interface, in all languages you allow.

Backpack Language Manager aka Translation Manager

In addition:

  • if you have Backpack PRO installed, your admin can also see Filters in the List View;
  • if you have Backpack Editable-Columns installed, your admin can also edit the translation right there in the List View;

We are super-glad that Antonio and Pedro have been able to deliver a great FREE package for our entire community... and then make it even better for people who have access to some paid features. They made it so we deliver value to everyone who uses Backpack. Super-happy about that!

For more information, check out the Translation Manager package on Github.
