Status update on our RSS feed

Apologies to those of you still using feed readers, but unfortunately we’ve got to change our feed URL. I’ve known for a while that the feed has been broken, but my attempts at getting FeedBurner to pick it up after our migration has come to nothing. As you are probably aware, Google hasn’t shown FeedBurner much love and no-one appears to have the login details for the account so we’ve hit a brick wall in what we can do.

Sorry again for the inconvenience.

Rails version 3.2.5 has been released!

Good news everyone! Rails version 3.2.5 has been released.

This version of Rails is a less broken version of 3.2.4!

What happened with 3.2.4?

A regression was reported in the release candidate. I reverted that regression without releasing another release candidate for testing. This release fixes the original regression along with the error made during reverting.

CHANGES

This release only contains a few changes, mainly reverting bad commits. Please check out the commit list on github.

Thanks to everyone, especially @pixeltrix and @rafaelfranca for putting up with me!

[ANN] Rails 3.2.3 has been released!

Rails 3.2.3 has been released!!!.

IMPORTANT

This release changes the default value of config.active_record.whitelist_attributes to true. This change only affects newly generated applications so it should not cause any backwards compatibility issues for users who are upgrading but it may affect some tutorials and introductory material. For more information see the mass assignment section of the ruby on rails security guide

Rails 3.2.3 also introduces a new option that allows you to control the behavior of remote forms when it comes to authenticity_token generation. If you want to fragment cache your forms, authenticity token will also get cached, which isn’t acceptable. However, if you only use such forms with ajax, you can disable token generation, because it will be fetched from meta tag. Starting with 3.2.3, you have an option to stop generating authenticity_token in remote forms (ie. :remote => true is passed as an option), by setting config.action_view.embed_authenticity_token_in_remote_forms = false. Please note that this will break sending those forms with javascript disabled. If you choose to not generate the token in remote forms by default, you can still explicitly pass :authenticity_token => true when generating the form to bypass this setting. The option defaults to true, which means that existing apps are NOT affected.

We’ve also adjusted the dependencies on rack-cache and mail to address the recent security vulnerabilities with those libraries. If you are running a vulnerable version of mail or rack-cache you should update both gems to a safe version. There were also some regressions in the render method that were fixed in this version.

CHANGES since 3.2.2

Action Mailer

  • Upgrade mail version to 2.4.3 ML

Action Pack

  • Fix #5632, render :inline set the proper rendered format. Santiago Pastorino

  • Fix textarea rendering when using plugins like HAML. Such plugins encode the first newline character in the content. This issue was introduced in https://github.com/rails/rails/pull/5191 James Coleman

  • Do not include the authenticity token in forms where remote: true as ajax forms use the meta-tag value DHH

  • Turn off verbose mode of rack-cache, we still have X-Rack-Cache to check that info. Closes #5245. Santiago Pastorino

  • Fix #5238, rendered_format is not set when template is not rendered. Piotr Sarnacki

  • Upgrade rack-cache to 1.2. José Valim

  • ActionController::SessionManagement is deprecated. Santiago Pastorino

  • Since the router holds references to many parts of the system like engines, controllers and the application itself, inspecting the route set can actually be really slow, therefore we default alias inspect to to_s. José Valim

  • Add a new line after the textarea opening tag. Closes #393 rafaelfranca

  • Always pass a respond block from to responder. We should let the responder to decide what to do with the given overridden response block, and not short circuit it. sikachu

  • Fixes layout rendering regression from 3.2.2. José Valim

Active Model

  • No changes

Active Record

  • Added find_or_create_by_{attribute}! dynamic method. Andrew White

  • Whitelist all attribute assignment by default. Change the default for newly generated applications to whitelist all attribute assignment. Also update the generated model classes so users are reminded of the importance of attr_accessible. NZKoz

  • Update ActiveRecord::AttributeMethods#attribute_present? to return false for empty strings. Jacobkg

  • Fix associations when using per class databases. larskanis

  • Revert setting NOT NULL constraints in add_timestamps fxn

  • Fix mysql to use proper text types. Fixes #3931. kennyj
