Ruby on Rails 2.3.5 Hits Streets
The Ruby on Rails community releases Rails 2.3.5. Version 2.3.5 of the Ruby on Rails Web development framework features improved support for Ruby 1.9 and more.The Ruby on Rails community has announced Rails 2.3.5, a new release of the Ruby on Rails Web development framework that features improved support for Ruby 1.9 and more. In a Nov. 30 blog post, Gregg Pollack, a Rails developer and member of the Rails Activism team, said Rails 2.3.5 provides several bug fixes and one security fix. The new release is compatible with other 2.3.x versions of Rails, he said.
In addition to the improved compatibility with Ruby 1.9, Rails 2.3.5 supports a RailsXss plug-in. "If you want to have this functionality today you can install Koz's RailsXss plug-in in Rails 2.3.5," Pollack said.
"If you're using Rails 2.3.x, you should upgrade to this version as soon as possible, to get the security fixes that it contains. If you're using Rails 2.2, there's a separate patch available. Rails versions older than 2.2 are no longer supported with security patches, and should be retired/upgraded as soon as possible."
