Hello everyone! This is Greg with the latest news from the Rails world.

Rails 5.1.3.rc1 and 5.0.5.rc1 released

Two new release candidates has been released this week, if there are no regressions found, the final releases are coming next week!

This Week’s Rails contributors!

28 people helped to make Rails better this week. If you want to be one of them, checkout the issues list, help is always welcomed!

Add bootsnap to default Gemfile

The bootsnap gem helps to boot a Rails application faster, and the gem is now part of the Rails default Gemfile.

Allow to pass a connection to the dbconsole command

With this change the dbconsole command can except a connection parameter, so if you are using a 3 level database connection configuration you can specify the connection you want to use.

Fix where with a custom table name

With this week the select clause will use the custom table name if you have a table alias set up.

Scrub the invalid parameter value before using it in the error

When Rack::Utils::InvalidParameterError is raised the exception message now scrubs the parameter value to make it possible to use it in error messages.

Make rails yarn:install ignore dev dependencies

With this change rails yarn:install won’t install the development dependencies, so in deployment when the assets are precompiled they are ignored. bin/yarn still installs everything in your development environment.

That’s all for this week, as always, we couldn’t cover all of the changes, but feel free to check the commits if you are interested. Until next week!
