This week in Rails
Nov 6 2015
Hi there everyone o/
Washington here putting together another weekly Rails issue for the most awesome community.
Please take a minute or two to update your project Gemfile and run the build on the RCs. Spotting regressions now means they're fixed in another RC rather than a new point release some month(s) away.
As of 17h15min, UTC -3, 28 contributors made their commits to Rails master. Some of those for the very first time. Welcome!
MySQL and Postgres Active Record adapters were enhanced to avoid confusing behaviour or exceptions when running migrations on multi-instance clusters. See the issue as well for more details.
Good old serve_static_files is being deprecated as of Rails 5 in favor of public_file_server.enabled so we have all static asset options under the same public_file_server key.
Exception wrapping implementation got a bit simpler this week by using Ruby's built in Exception#cause, available since version 2.1.
Another concurrent-ruby bump and related load time improvements.
This was reported quite a while ago, but now someone stepped up to the plate and followed it through. Rails got a bit safer again, thanks to the community. ❤️
Sanity checking configuration files in other environments just got easier as well.
That's all for This week in Rails. As always, there are many more changes than we have room to cover here, but feel free to check them out yourself.
Until next time!
