Items below this line are from the previously maintained and files.

[2.0.0.rc1] 2016-05-06

  • Rack::Session::Abstract::ID is deprecated. Please change to use Rack::Session::Abstract::Persisted

[2.0.0.alpha] 2015-12-04

  • First-party "SameSite" cookies. Browsers omit SameSite cookies from third-party requests, closing the door on many CSRF attacks.
  • Pass same_site: true (or :strict) to enable: response.set_cookie 'foo', value: 'bar', same_site: true or same_site: :lax to use Lax enforcement: response.set_cookie 'foo', value: 'bar', same_site: :lax
  • Based on version 7 of the Same-site Cookies internet draft:
  • Thanks to Ben Toews (@mastahyeti) and Bob Long (@bobjflong) for updating to drafts 5 and 7.
  • Add Rack::Events middleware for adding event based middleware: middleware that does not care about the response body, but only cares about doing work at particular points in the request / response lifecycle.
  • Add Rack::Request#authority to calculate the authority under which the response is being made (this will be handy for h2 pushes).
  • Add Rack::Response::Helpers#cache_control and cache_control=. Use this for setting cache control headers on your response objects.
  • Add Rack::Response::Helpers#etag and etag=. Use this for setting etag values on the response.
  • Introduce Rack::Response::Helpers#add_header to add a value to a multi-valued response header. Implemented in terms of other Response#*_header methods, so it's available to any response-like class that includes the Helpers module.
  • Add Rack::Request#add_header to match.
  • Rack::Session::Abstract::ID IS DEPRECATED. Please switch to Rack::Session::Abstract::Persisted. Rack::Session::Abstract::Persisted uses a request object rather than the env hash.
  • Pull ENV access inside the request object in to a module. This will help with legacy Request objects that are ENV based but don't want to inherit from Rack::Request
  • Move most methods on the Rack::Request to a module Rack::Request::Helpers and use public API to get values from the request object. This enables users to mix Rack::Request::Helpers in to their own objects so they can implement (get|set|fetch|each)_header as they see fit (for example a proxy object).
  • Files and directories with + in the name are served correctly. Rather than unescaping paths like a form, we unescape with a URI parser using Rack::Utils.unescape_path. Fixes #265
  • Tempfiles are automatically closed in the case that there were too many posted.
  • Added methods for manipulating response headers that don't assume they're stored as a Hash. Response-like classes may include the Rack::Response::Helpers module if they define these methods:
    • Rack::Response#has_header?
    • Rack::Response#get_header
    • Rack::Response#set_header
    • Rack::Response#delete_header
  • Introduce Util.get_byte_ranges that will parse the value of the HTTP_RANGE string passed to it without depending on the env hash. byte_ranges is deprecated in favor of this method.
  • Change Session internals to use Request objects for looking up session information. This allows us to only allocate one request object when dealing with session objects (rather than doing it every time we need to manipulate cookies, etc).
  • Add Rack::Request#initialize_copy so that the env is duped when the request gets duped.
  • Added methods for manipulating request specific data. This includes data set as CGI parameters, and just any arbitrary data the user wants to associate with a particular request. New methods:
    • Rack::Request#has_header?
    • Rack::Request#get_header
    • Rack::Request#fetch_header
    • Rack::Request#each_header
    • Rack::Request#set_header
    • Rack::Request#delete_header
  • lib/rack/utils.rb: add a method for constructing "delete" cookie headers. This allows us to construct cookie headers without depending on the side effects of mutating a hash.
  • Prevent extremely deep parameters from being parsed. CVE-2015-3225

  • Fix CVE-2014-9490, denial of service attack in OkJson
