This week in Rails
Mar 11 2016
This is Washington with the latest news from Rails!
Again we start pointing to the 40 people who took some time to improve the framework this week!
After a round of release candidates here goes the latest stable releases. Hopefully a quite easy upgrade if you've been following the latest security patches.
Similar to Hash#dig, this easter egg for Ruby 2.3.0 users was introduced this week and should land with Rails 5.
One last piece of a non-native JSON data type, aka Ruby symbols, was normalized so that one can make successful run time checks.
This is done so that actions using respond_to blocks go hand in hand with Rails 5 default :no_content response for missing templates.
Improved compatibility for marshalled objects between Rails versions, e.g. Rails 4.0.x and 4.2.x
Give a proper context to queries involving a default_scope triggered from a subclass of ActiveRecord#Base.abstract_class.
That's all for This week in Rails. As always, there are plenty of things we're not able to cover here, so take a look at the changes yourself.
Until next time!
