  • Fix regression in functional tests. Responses should have default headers assigned.

    See #18423.

    Jeremy Kemper, Yves Senn

  • Deprecate AbstractController#skip_action_callback in favor of individual skip_callback methods (which can be made to raise an error if no callback was removed).

    Iain Beeston

  • Alias the ActionDispatch::Request#uuid method to ActionDispatch::Request#request_id. Due to implementation, config.log_tags = [:request_id] also works in substitute for config.log_tags = [:uuid].

    David Ilizarov

  • Change filter on /rails/info/routes to use an actual path regexp from rails and not approximate javascript version. Oniguruma supports much more extensive list of features than javascript regexp engine.

    Fixes #18402.

    Ravil Bayramgalin

  • Non-string authenticity tokens do not raise NoMethodError when decoding the masked token.

    Ville Lautanala

  • Add http_cache_forever to Action Controller, so we can cache a response that never gets expired.


  • ActionController#translate supports symbols as shortcuts. When shortcut is given it also lookups without action name.

    Max Melentiev

  • Expand ActionController::ConditionalGet#fresh_when and stale? to also accept a collection of records as the first argument, so that the following code can be written in a shorter form.

    # Before
    def index
      @articles = Article.all
      fresh_when(etag: @articles, last_modified: @articles.maximum(:updated_at))
    # After
    def index
      @articles = Article.all


  • Explicitly ignored wildcard verbs when searching for HEAD routes before fallback

    Fixes an issue where a mounted rack app at root would intercept the HEAD request causing an incorrect behavior during the fall back to GET requests.


    draw do
        get '/home' => 'test#index'
        mount rack_app, at: '/'
    head '/home'
    assert_response :success

    In this case, a HEAD request runs through the routes the first time and fails to match anything. Then, it runs through the list with the fallback and matches get '/home'. The original behavior would match the rack app in the first pass.

    Terence Sun

  • Migrating xhr methods to keyword arguments syntax in ActionController::TestCase and ActionDispatch::Integration

    Old syntax:

    xhr :get, :create, params: { id: 1 }

    New syntax example:

    get :create, params: { id: 1 }, xhr: true

    Kir Shatrov

  • Migrating to keyword arguments syntax in ActionController::TestCase and ActionDispatch::Integration HTTP request methods.


    post :create, params: { y: x }, session: { a: 'b' }
    get :view, params: { id: 1 }
    get :view, params: { id: 1 }, format: :json

    Kir Shatrov

  • Preserve default url options when generating URLs.

    Fixes an issue that would cause default_url_options to be lost when generating URLs with fewer positional arguments than parameters in the route definition.

    Tekin Suleyman

  • Deprecate *_via_redirect integration test methods.

    Use follow_redirect! manually after the request call for the same behavior.

    Aditya Kapoor

  • Add ActionController::Renderer to render arbitrary templates outside controller actions.

    Its functionality is accessible through class methods render and renderer of ActionController::Base.

    Ravil Bayramgalin

  • Support :assigns option when rendering with controllers/mailers.

    Ravil Bayramgalin

  • Default headers, removed in controller actions, are no longer reapplied on the test response.

    Jonas Baumann

  • Deprecate all *_filter callbacks in favor of *_action callbacks.

    Rafael Mendonça França

  • Allow you to pass prepend: false to protect_from_forgery to have the verification callback appended instead of prepended to the chain. This allows you to let the verification step depend on prior callbacks.


    class ApplicationController < ActionController::Base
      before_action :authenticate
      protect_from_forgery prepend: false, unless: -> { @authenticated_by.oauth? }
        def authenticate
          if oauth_request?
            # authenticate with oauth
            @authenticated_by = 'oauth'.inquiry
            # authenticate with cookies
            @authenticated_by = 'cookie'.inquiry

    Josef Šimánek

  • Remove ActionController::HideActions.

    Ravil Bayramgalin

  • Remove respond_to/respond_with placeholder methods, this functionality has been extracted to the responders gem.

    Carlos Antonio da Silva

  • Remove deprecated assertion files.

    Rafael Mendonça França

  • Remove deprecated usage of string keys in URL helpers.

    Rafael Mendonça França

  • Remove deprecated only_path option on *_path helpers.

    Rafael Mendonça França

  • Remove deprecated NamedRouteCollection#helpers.

    Rafael Mendonça França

  • Remove deprecated support to define routes with :to option that doesn't contain #.

    Rafael Mendonça França

  • Remove deprecated ActionDispatch::Response#to_ary.

    Rafael Mendonça França

  • Remove deprecated ActionDispatch::Request#deep_munge.

    Rafael Mendonça França

  • Remove deprecated ActionDispatch::Http::Parameters#symbolized_path_parameters.

    Rafael Mendonça França

  • Remove deprecated option use_route in controller tests.

    Rafael Mendonça França

  • Ensure append_info_to_payload is called even if an exception is raised.

    Fixes an issue where when an exception is raised in the request the additonal payload data is not available.


    Dieter Komendera, Margus Pärt

  • Correctly rely on the response's status code to handle calls to head.

    Robin Dupret

  • Using head method returns empty response_body instead of returning a single space " ".

    The old behavior was added as a workaround for a bug in an early version of Safari, where the HTTP headers are not returned correctly if the response body has a 0-length. This is been fixed since and the workaround is no longer necessary.

    Fixes #18253.

    Prathamesh Sonpatki

  • Fix how polymorphic routes works with objects that implement to_model.

    Travis Grathwell

  • Stop converting empty arrays in params to nil.

    This behaviour was introduced in response to CVE-2012-2660, CVE-2012-2694 and CVE-2013-0155

    ActiveRecord now issues a safe query when passing an empty array into a where clause, so there is no longer a need to defend against this type of input (any nils are still stripped from the array).

    Chris Sinjakli

  • Fixed usage of optional scopes in url helpers.

    Alex Robbin

  • Fixed handling of positional url helper arguments when format: false.

    Fixes #17819.
