This Week In Rails: 5.0.0.rc2 release, bugfixes, and more!

Posted by gregmolnar

Hello everyone! This is Greg bringing latest news from the Rails community.

This week’s Rails Contributors

22 great people helped this week to move the Rails framework forward! If you want to join these folks, have a look at the issues list.

Rails 5.0.0.rc2 release!

Rails 5 RC2 has been released with a lot of bug fixes and polishing. We are one step closer to the final release!


Fix rails/info routes for apps with globbing route

The /rails/info routes were inaccessible in apps with a catch-all route, as they were being appended after the globbing route and would never be matched.

Fix db:structure:load silent failure on PostgresSQL error

The db:structure:load  task silently failed if there was any SQL error, but with this commit, now it will report the error.


Improved db:structure:dump

To avoid unnecessary diffs in the db structure dump, the –skip-comments flag is passed to the mysqldump  command from now on.


datetime_field change

The datetime_tag helper now generates an input tag with the type of datetime-local.

Wrapping Up

That’s it from This Week in Rails! There were many other great contributions, too numerous to list here, but feel free to check them out!

Until next week!
