V2 of laravel-failed-job-monitor has been released

In the beginning of the year we released a package to notify you when a queued job in your Laravel application fails. Today we tagged v2 of that laravel-failed-job-monitor package. The big change is that it now uses Laravel 5.3’s native notification capabilities. So it’s a cinch to modify the notification or add some more channels.

Here’s how the notification looks like on Slack.

A big thank you to Egor Talantsev who helped out with this release. Take a look at the package on GitHub to learn more the package. Happy monitoring!
