Hello, this is Andrew, bringing you the latest news from the Ruby on Rails world!

18 contributors to Rails in past week

There have been 18 contributors to Rails in the second full week of 2020! 

Rack 2.1.0 and 2.1.1 released

These releases add support for the SameSite=None cookie value, new HTTP status codes, bug fixes, and several other exciting changes and additions. Updates to Rails following the release have also begun.

Check out the Rack changelog to learn more.

Introduce Active Support Disallowed Deprecations

This addition allows the configuration of rules to match deprecation warnings that should not be allowed and ActiveSupport::Deprecation#disallowed_behavior, which specifies the behavior to be used when a disallowed deprecation warning is matched.

Stop individual Action Cable streams

Channels with multiple subscriptions can now stop following individual streams. Before this change, the only option was to stop all streams.

Remove an empty line from generated migration

This fix prevents an extra newline from getting added in generated migrations.

That’s it for this week, till next time!
