Posted by dodecadaniel, November 17, 2019 @ 12:00 am in News

Hey there! This is Daniel bringing you the latest news in Rails. I am writing from RubyConf in Nashville, so come find me and say hello if you are here too!

Rails 6.0.1 released

As always, this release is loaded with fixes and improvements. Today seems like a good day to upgrade, don’t you think?

Introduce role manager to manage connections

I am a big fan of detailed commit messages, and this commit has an impressive one. This change will help to eventually support sharding in Rails.

Disable logging for jobs with sensitive arguments

Do you have any jobs that include sensitive arguments like passwords? You probably don’t want to see those arguments showing up in your logs. Now you can disable argument logging for any job by setting the log_arguments configuration option.

Use both implicit order column and primary key for ordering

To ensure deterministic results, records are now ordered by both implicit_order_column and the primary key, when available. This commit is from a first-time contributor. Nice work!

Remove duplicated database configuration logic

The Rails codebase is fairly complex. It is always nice to see a commit that simplifies it, reduces duplication, and improves behavior while removing lines.

36 people contributed since last time, including several first-time contributors. Check out the full list of changes.

Bye for now! 👋🏻
