We’ll keep this one short.

Tickets for this year’s Rails World will be available for purchase on Tuesday, April 30, 2024, at 1 PM EDT from the official Rails World site. The Foundation has more information on tickets here.

On to your weekly dose of Rails updates:

Pre-7.1 Rails migrations use legacy index names when using rename_table
This pull request ensures compatibility for Rails versions before 7.1 by retaining the legacy index name format. Beginning with version 7.1, Rails introduced a new index name format. Consequently, migrations containing rename_table might generate index names distinct from those created between Rails 7.0 and 7.1. A similar pull request addressing migrations containing create_table was initiated last year.

Support hexBinary type in XML
This pull request introduces a hexBinary parser in XML. hexBinary stands out as one of the fundamental data types in XML that’s not included in Rails until this addition.

Deprecate ActiveSupport::ProxyObject
This pull request deprecates ActiveSupport::ProxyObject in favor of Ruby’s built-in BasicObject.

We had 31 contributors to the Rails codebase this past week! You can view this week’s contributions in its entirety here.
