Active Storage, startless range in queries, SMS links and more!

Hello! This is Roque bringing the latest news from the Rails community. It’s been awhile so let’s see what has changed since then… Oops, since last week 😜

Preserve existing attachment assignment behavior for app upgraded to Rails 6.0

Assigning a collection of attachments appends to the collection as it did in 5.2. Existing 5.2 apps that rely on this behavior will no longer break when they’re upgraded to 6.0. For Apps generated on 6.0, assigning replaces the existing attachments in the collection. #attach should be used to add new attachments to the collection without removing existing ones.

Support startless ranges in queries

Add support to startless ranges (e.g. ..10 and ..Date.today), introduced by Ruby 2.7.0-preview1, to Active Record queries. This enables expression like Order.where(created_at: ..1.year.ago).

When the users click the SMS link, their messaging app opens with the phone number and optional message body set in the link.

Superclass for aborted queries

The class ActiveRecord::QueryAborted makes it possible, for example, to rescue all possible query timeouts without rescuing other query exceptions.

Add --skip-collision-check option to the Rails generator

This allows the generator for 6.0 to behave like it used to in 5.2, and overwrite files.
