Hello 🌧 from London! This is Kir, bringing you the latest Rails updates in this episode of the newsletter.
28 people contributed to Rails in the last week, including 3 for the first time! A big thank you to all of you!
ImageProcessing gem provides a wrapper around MiniMagic and ruby-vips, allowing you to change backends on the fly and benefit from libvips being up to 10x faster than ImageMagick.
The Getting Started picture that you can see in new Rails apps was updated with a more diverse population.
assert_presence_of now works with ActiveStorage attachments.
To simplify release management, Arel library hosted in rails/arel has been merged to ActiveRecord, and is now located in rails/rails.
As always there were many more changes to the Rails codebase than we can cover here. But you can read all about them here! Until next week!
