Ahoy hoy! Tim (aka Godfrey) here bringing you all the latest from the Rails community. It's been yet another killer week of activity as we continue to refine Rails 5 ahead of its upcoming launch 🚀. Don't touch that dial - it's gonna be a helluva show!
Last week brought us an updated look at Rails by none other than DHH himself. The video offers a whirlwind tour of some of the most powerful features of the framework for newcomers in a tutorial that gets a blog set up in around 20 minutes. It also offers something for those looking to integrate newer features into their existing Ruby on Rails applications.
A recent regression caused #send_file to fail to halt the request cycle when used in a before_action. This is because the callback terminator checks for @_response_body, which is no longer set by #send_file. This fix updated to use #performed? instead.
