Ruby on Rails

Three New Releases

Jessica Thornsby

The Ruby on Rails team release 2.3.6, 2.3.7 and 2.3.8 all in one week!

Three new versions of Ruby on Rails have been released this week.

Version 2.3.6 is the biggie, featuring a Rack upgrade from version 1.0.1 to 1.1.0, some cookie jar add-ons for setting permanent or signed cookies, and support for optional table name prefixes on modules. i18n has been upgraded from 1.3.3 to 1.3.7, TZInfo from 0.3.12 to 0.3.16, and TMail from 1.2.3 to 1.2.7.

Then, came 2.3.7, after Nathan Weizenbaum came across some bugs in the HTML-safety changes backported from Rails 3. However, when this release endeavoured to fix compatibility with the rails_xss plugin, it inadvertently forced everyone to use it.

“I apologize for wasting a chunk of your day on installing what ought to have been a patch-level update only to find it breaks your app. That’s well out of line with our stable release process and it’s my fault for stepping out of it,” reads the 2.3.8 announcement. “Rails 2.3.8 is available now, bringing us back to stable ground.”

The latest release, 2.3.8, can be downloaded now.
