Hello everyone! This is Roque, with the latest news about Ruby on Rails!

Help test Rails 5.2.1.rc1

Help us test this release candidate to have a solid and stable 5.2.1.

Faster parallel testing

Instead of running database migrations for each set of tests, Rails will load the schema to improve performance.

Raises exception when respond_to is called multiple times

An exception will be raised when respond_to is called multiple times in an incompatible way. For example, when the Content-Type values do not match.

Set a default Content-Type for the method head

The method head will have Content-Type as text/html when one is not provided.

Fix the IP address logged by Rails

It will now log the remote IP address of clients behind a proxy instead of the IP of the proxy itself.
