This Week in Rails: params encoding, better logging and more!

Hello! This is Roque covering latest events from the Rails community. Like in Rio, our week was busy with plenty of amazing participants #Rio2016 🇧🇷

Security releases!

New Rails versions are released with many important security fixes. If you have not done already, do not drop the ball and upgrade as soon as possible.

This Week’s Rails Contributors

This week 29 code athletes contributed to Rails. We also got 1 first time contributor. Welcome aboard the Rails Games!

Allow specifying encoding of parameters by action

Controllers can list the parameters with parameter_encoding, providing the action and the encoding type.
This allows parameters in the same request to have particular encoding types.


Fix thread_mattr_accessor class leaking

thread_mattr_accessor was sharing the variable with superclasses and subclasses. Setting the variable in one would compromise the other.

Fix the Accept header overwritten issue in integration tests

XHR integration tests were overwriting the Accept header and creating inconsistency with HTTP_ACCEPT.


Better logging of cached partial renders

A while ago, DHH suggested an improvement to better log cached partial renders. It looks pretty clean!

Show error message when Rails runner fails

The Rails runner will now give you a hint of what is going on whenever it fails with an exception.

Wrapping Up

That’s it from This Week in Rails! There were many other great code athletes, too numerous to list here, but feel free to check them out!

Until next week!
