Updating Dependencies

Update your composer.json file to match the 3.8 branch core addons and dependencies: https://github.com/pyrocms/pyrocms/blob/3.8/composer.json#L24-L86

Of course, don't forget to examine any additional addons and packages consumed by your application and verify you are using the proper version for PyroCMS 3.8 support.

Laravel Review

PyroCMS 3.8 updates Laravel from version 6 to 8. Please review the upgrade guides for both versions.

Composer Update

Now that the composer.json file has been brought up to speed we can let composer update our dependencies:

composer update

php artisan refresh
