[ANN] Rails 4.1.9.rc1 and 4.0.13.rc1 have been released!

Hi everyone,

I am happy to announce that Rails 4.1.9.rc1 and 4.0.13.rc1 have been released.

This is the first release of the year and it includes a lot of bug fixes. This will be also the last release of 4.0 series as announced in a previous blog post.

As per our maintenance policy, the release of Rails 4.2.0 means bug fixes will only apply to 4-2-stable, regular security issues to 4.2.x, 4.1.x, and severe security issues to 4.2.x, 4.1.x, and 3.2.x. In addition to these already stated commitments, I agreed to also apply bug fixes to 4-1-stable until the Rails 5 release.

As before, we will announce in a future blog post when we will drop bug fixes support for Rails 4.1.

If no regressions are found expect the final release this Tuesday, on January 6, 2015. If you find one, please open an issue on GitHub and mention me (@rafaelfranca) on it, so that we can fix it before the final release.
