Hi all! o/
Here is Washington bringing you this week’s news from our favorite framework. I hope you have made it to Friday the 13th without any major hiccups (I can’t say the same about my internet provider). Either way, it’s time to grab a drink, wind down and read on!
Give them a try on your projects to help make the next release as rock solid as possible. Many regressions have already been fixed and the final release should be out on March 17.
Couple more developers made their first commit into Rails this week. Take a moment to review the open issues, perhaps you will find something related to your day job, manage to fix it and have your first patch in Rails!
It’s that time of the year again! As reported last week, we have been selected to participate in this year’s Google Summer of Code program. This week, a few more exciting ideas have landed on our project page!
Applications will open next week, so please help spread the word!
Speaking of summer, Rails Girls Summer of Code have just opened their applications today. If your company can afford it, consider becoming a sponsor!
Mostly inspired by shopify/turbograft turbolinks now also supports partial replacement. Checkout the PR with docs as well for usage details.
As of this week Rails is giving another try on running tests in random order!!! You should probably try the same on all your projects for more reliable test results.
Apparently Ruby 2.2.0 kwargs were still not that stable. A related issue caused a segfault error on ActionPack tests. So Rails 5 will require at least Ruby 2.2.1.
In case your project upgrade to Rails 4.2.0 raised any Can’t modify frozen hash errors, checkout the latest release candidate. Chances are it will be fixed in Rails 4.2.1.
That’s all for This week in Rails. As always, there are more changes than we have room to cover here, but feel free to check them out yourself!
