Hi there! It's Andy, bringing you another edition of This Week in Rails. Let's jump in!
This week 16 people contributed to Rails, including a first time contributor Muhammet! Thanks! If you'd like to join them, and perhaps get featured in next week's edition, why not check out the list of open issues?
New Releases
Rails 5.0.6 and 5.1.4 have been released. Check out the blog post for more details!

This change addresses the performance of `pluck` when used with a scope, around symbols used in a case statement for branching logic.
The author described this change as performing normalization on cache-control headers in a consistent way. This might be worth a peek if your app utilizes this type of caching.
Bug Fixes
Nice example of putting together a failing test case along with the change.
This change documents duration support added to the `:expires` option of cookies. Changelog entries were also added for the duration support and expiry meta data added to signed/encrypted cookies.

Wrapping Up
That's it for this week! As always, there isn't enough time to cover every change, but we value each and every one. If you'd like to know more, you can check out the full list of changes yourself. Catch you next week!
