On his site today Phil Sturgeon has a new post showing how to use autoloading with Laravel based on the recently approved PSR-4 standard.
The video shows you how to move over from the current autoloading methods, PSR-0, for your own packages, not Laravel's. He walks you through the creation of the typical PSR-0 package structure and classes then shows it in use in a simple controller.
The font's a bit small on the screencast, but it gets the idea across. Migrating over to the new autoloading is relatively easy, it just takes a little tweaking on the current structure.
