2.0 Migration Guide

Authorization 2.0 contains new features and a few breaking changes.

Breaking Changes

The IdentityInterface has had typehinting added. If you have implemented the IdentityInterface you will need to update your application’s implementation to reflect the new typehints.

In addition to typehints IdentityInterface has a canResult() method added. This method always returns a ResultInterface object while can() always returns a boolean. In 1.x the can() method would return a boolean or ResultInterface depending on what the policy returned. This made knowing the return value of can() very hard. The new methods and additional typings make IdentityInterface simpler and more reliable to use.
