    entries New simplified logic for entries methods: fetch() fetchSingle() and fetchCollection()

    โšก๏ธ We are stop doing unneeded things like extra scanning folders and files updates and etc... for fetching entries collections that's slowdowns the fetching process.

    We have improved filtering abilities for entries collections.

    From now there is a possible to path a much more rules for collections filtering inside the fetchCollection() and with using a standalone helper functions like collect_filter() and find_filter()

    • public function fetch(string $path, bool $collection = false, $filter = []) : array
      Fetch single entry or collections of entries.
    • public function fetchSingle(string $path) : array
      Fetch single entry.
    • public function fetchCollection(string $path, $filter = []) : array
      Fetch entries collection.
