Rails 4.0.11.1 and 4.1.7.1 have been released

Hi everyone!

Rails 4.0.11.1 and 4.1.7.1 have been released!

These two releases contain only security fix that was already released as 4.0.12 and 4.1.8. You can read more about the issue here (CVE-2014-7829).

4.0.12 and 4.1.8 were inadvertently based on their respective stable branches, and so incorporated additional changes beyond those necessary to resolve the security issue. In keeping with our security policy, it is our intention to include only the minimum necessary changes in security releases, to ensure everyone can upgrade without fear of regressions. As those releases included unrelated changes, we are providing new releases, based on the previous release, which contain only the security fix itself.

If you have already successfully upgraded to 4.0.12 or 4.1.8, no further action is required. Otherwise, if you are still on 4.0.11 or 4.1.7, please do upgrade to 4.0.11.1 or 4.1.7.1 at your earliest convenience.

The 3.2.21 release did incorporate a second change, but that change was intended: by policy, minor security-relevant bugs (which do not independently warrant a security release) are occasionally backported to 3-2-stable, and rolled into a subsequent security release.

The commits for 4.0.11.1 can be found here, and the commits for 4.1.7.1 can be found here.
