Welcome to This week in Rails, your weekly inside scoop of interesting commits, pull requests and more from Rails.
As you might recall, we have been assembling a team of editors for this newsletter. This week we are introducing our second editor Greg Molnar who will be your newsletter curator today! If you would like to do the same, just let me know!
A minor mistake was made with the 4.0.12 and 4.1.8 releases as they included other unrelated patches, hence the Rails Core team released 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 These two new releases contains only the patch for CVE-2014-7829, to make the upgrade as easy as possible.
If you already upgraded to 4.0.12 or 4.1.8 you can safely skip these releases.
If you are planning to contribute to the docs this might be useful to know. In the documentation you need to use +...+ to wrap inline code snippets but it only works for basic identifiers. For more elaborate code snippets you'd want to use the tt tag instead.
If you want to dig deeper into how to format documentation there is a handy guide for you.
The default log level for new applications has changed to :debug, from :info and a deprecation warning has been added in case you don't have a log_level set in production. This is a step towards unifying the log_level in Rails 5.
That's all for this issue of This week in Rails. If you are interested in the changes we haven't covered here, you can take a look for yourself.
I hope you enjoyed this week release and feel free to share the newsletter with all your Rails friends.
Thanks for reading, everyone, and thanks for the help Godfrey and Kasper!
