Keeping eye on competing frameworks

I like to keep eye out for what's going on in web development scene, so been watching some Laravel stuff lately.

Recent talk from Laracon AU, it's about migrating to Laravel, but for some reason he's basing it exclusively on getting out of CodeIgniter project, so it was interesting to see how developers using other frameworks see CodeIgniter.


Looks like he's main points why people should move away from quote "legacy framework like CodeIgniter" are:
- it doesn't support Composer
- it doesn't have templating engine
- it doesn't have any automated framework / backend / unit tests implemented
- it doesn't have any automated frontend / in-browser tests implemented, which Laravel has available via Laravel Dusk
- models implement SQL queries and doesn't use Eloquent, and that is making queries slower

Mind you, he's examples are all based CI 2.x, which obviously is older than 3.x, let alone new shiny 4.0.

From what I've seen most of these points will be made invalid by CI4 out of the box, minus probably only in-browser testing?
