Live from RailsConf, happy 100th newsletter from Godfrey, Claudio, Vipul, Roque and Prathamesh (plus Kasper and Jon joining remotely).
The train from Kansas City is leaving the station soon. Just in time for a quick recap of what happened at RailsConf 2016 and this week in Rails.
This week 26 people contributed to Rails, including a first-time contributor. Thanks to your support, we are on our way to almost 5,000 all-time contributors!
Jeremy promised in his keynote that Rails 5 RC 1 will be released during the conference and it is here now!
Another key milestone towards the final Rails 5 release.
🚆 RailsConf 🚆
In the next weeks, Confreaks will be posting individual videos for each session. Meanwhile, you can still catch the full-day videos for Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3.
If you attended the RailsConf, don’t forget to let the organizers know your feedback before May 13th!
With this helper proxy, users can reuse helpers in the controller without having to include all the modules related to view context.
When provided with large numbers, Active Model now fails with a new
ActiveModel::RangeError that makes it easier to rescue from, and inherits from
RangeError to maintain backward compatibility.
Rails session is now compatible with other Rack frameworks like Sinatra that are mounted in Rails. They can also use session tooling of Rails without any issues now.
Meeting you all at RailsConf was a lot of fun. And if you haven’t seen us up on stage during the lightning talks, here is the YouTube link of “Goodfry and his boy band”.
That concludes our report for this week. There were plenty of other things going on, so feel free to jump in and check them out yourself. Also look out for the announcement of all the videos from RailsConf on Confreaks!
See you next year at RailsConf 2017 in Phoenix AZ!
