Rails 4.2.10 released

Posted by eileencodes, September 27, 2017 @ 10:33 am in Releases

Hi everyone,

I am happy to announce that Rails 4.2.10 final has been released!

As noted in the rc1 post, Rails 4.2 is no longer supported except for severe security patches, but the last release introduced a couple regressions that warranted a release. Unless more regressions are found this will likely be the last bug fix release for Rails 4.2. :champagne:

CHANGES since 4.2.9

The following gems had changes since 4.2.9. Changes are listed below, or you can read the CHANGELOG’s on GitHub:

Fix regression in behavior of normalize_path.

In Rails 5 there was a change to ensure the encoding of the original string in a path was maintained. This was incorrectly backported to Rails 4.2 which caused a regression.

Relation#joins is no longer affected by the target model’s current_scope, with the exception of unscoped. Fixes #29338.

The remaining gems (Action Mailer, Action View, Active Job, Active Model, Active Support, and Railties) had no changes.
