Rails 7.0.2 has been released

Posted by rafaelfranca

Hi everyone,

I am happy to announce that Rails 7.0.2 has been released. While this looks like a regular patch release there are a few notable changes.

First, one feature that was introduced in 7.0.0 was removed, the ability to pass a service_name param to DirectUploadsController. This feature was causing significant issues when upgrading from Rails 6.1, so the Rails team decided to remove it while we work in a backward compatible change. You can read more about the original feature in the original pull request and about the problems in the related issue. We don’t take this decision lightly, and usually don’t remove features after they are released without a proper deprecation cycle, but at this time we decided to prioritize making it easier for people to upgrade.

Finally, with the same goal in mind, Rails 7.0.2 introduced a new feature, the ability to version the database schema based on the Rails version. This new feature will allow existing applications to still load their database schemas generated in Rails 6.1, with the same behavior as before, keeping it matching the production database schema. The rails app:update command was updated to change the database schema to include the Rails version. As soon the first schema dump is made using Rails 7.0 the schema will be updated to use the Rails 7.0 format. Read more about this change in the upgrading guide.
