Rails 5.1.3.rc2 (July 25, 2017)

  • No changes.

Rails 5.1.3.rc1 (July 19, 2017)

  • Relation#joins is no longer affected by the target model's current_scope, with the exception of unscoped.

    Fixes #29338.

    Sean Griffin

  • Previously, when building records using a has_many :through association, if the child records were deleted before the parent was saved, they would still be persisted. Now, if child records are deleted before the parent is saved on a has_many :through association, the child records will not be persisted.

    Tobias Kraze

Rails 5.1.2 (June 26, 2017)

  • Restore previous behavior of collection proxies: their values can have methods stubbed, and they respect extension modules applied by a default scope.

    Ryuta Kamizono

  • Loading model schema from database is now thread-safe.

    Fixes #28589.

    Vikrant Chaudhary, David Abdemoulaie

Rails 5.1.1 (May 12, 2017)

  • Add type caster to RuntimeReflection#alias_name

    Fixes #28959.

    Jon Moss

Rails 5.1.0 (April 27, 2017)

  • Quote database name in db:create grant statement (when database_user does not have access to create the database).

    Rune Philosof

  • When multiple threads are sharing a database connection inside a test using transactional fixtures, a nested transaction will temporarily lock the connection to the current thread, forcing others to wait.

    Fixes #28197.

    Matthew Draper

  • Load only needed records on ActiveRecord::Relation#inspect.

    Instead of loading all records and returning only a subset of those, just load the records as needed.

    Fixes #25537.

    Hendy Tanata

  • Remove comments from structure.sql when using postgresql adapter to avoid version-specific parts of the file.

    Fixes #28153.

    Ari Pollak

  • Add :default option to belongs_to.

    Use it to specify that an association should be initialized with a particular record before validation. For example:

    # Before
    belongs_to :account
    before_validation -> { self.account ||= Current.account }
    # After
    belongs_to :account, default: -> { Current.account }

    George Claghorn

  • Deprecate Migrator.schema_migrations_table_name.

    Ryuta Kamizono

  • Fix select with block doesn't return newly built records in has_many association.

    Fixes #28348.

    Ryuta Kamizono

  • Check whether Rails.application defined before calling it

    In #27674 we changed the migration generator to generate migrations at the path defined in Rails.application.config.paths however the code checked for the presence of the Rails constant but not the Rails.application method which caused problems when using Active Record and generators outside of the context of a Rails application.

    Fixes #28325.

    Andrew White

  • Fix deserialize with JSON array.

    Fixes #28285.

    Ryuta Kamizono

  • Fix rake db:schema:load with subdirectories.

    Ryuta Kamizono

  • Fix rake db:migrate:status with subdirectories.

    Ryuta Kamizono

  • Don't share options between reference id and type columns

    When using a polymorphic reference column in a migration, sharing options between the two columns doesn't make sense since they are different types. The reference_id column is usually an integer and the reference_type column a string so options like unsigned: true will result in an invalid table definition.

    Ryuta Kamizono

  • Use max_identifier_length for index_name_length in PostgreSQL adapter.

    Ryuta Kamizono

  • Deprecate supports_migrations? on connection adapters.

    Ryuta Kamizono

  • Fix regression of #1969 with SELECT aliases in HAVING clause.

    Eugene Kenny

  • Deprecate using #quoted_id in quoting.

    Ryuta Kamizono

  • Fix wait_timeout to configurable for mysql2 adapter.

    Fixes #26556.

    Ryuta Kamizono

  • Correctly dump native timestamp types for MySQL.

    The native timestamp type in MySQL is different from datetime type. Internal representation of the timestamp type is UNIX time, This means that timestamp columns are affected by time zone.

    > SET time_zone = '+00:00';
    Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)
    > INSERT INTO time_with_zone(ts,dt) VALUES (NOW(),NOW());
    Query OK, 1 row affected (0.02 sec)
    > SELECT * FROM time_with_zone;
    | ts                  | dt                  |
    | 2016-02-07 22:11:44 | 2016-02-07 22:11:44 |
    1 row in set (0.00 sec)
    > SET time_zone = '-08:00';
    Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)
    > SELECT * FROM time_with_zone;
    | ts                  | dt                  |
    | 2016-02-07 14:11:44 | 2016-02-07 22:11:44 |
    1 row in set (0.00 sec)

    Fixes #27864.

    Daniel Colson

  • Virtual/generated column support for MySQL 5.7.5+ and MariaDB 5.2.0+.

    MySQL generated columns: MariaDB virtual columns:

    Declare virtual columns with t.virtual name, type: …, as: "expression". Pass stored: true to persist the generated value (false by default).


    create_table :generated_columns do |t|
      t.string  :name
      t.virtual :upper_name,  type: :string,  as: "UPPER(name)"
      t.virtual :name_length, type: :integer, as: "LENGTH(name)", stored: true
      t.index :name_length  # May be indexed, too!

  • Optimize slow model instantiation when using STI and store_full_sti_class = false option.

    Konstantin Lazarev

  • Add touch option to counter cache modifying methods.

    Works when updating, resetting, incrementing and decrementing counters:

    # Touches `updated_at`/`updated_on`.
    Topic.increment_counter(:messages_count, 1, touch: true)
    Topic.decrement_counter(:messages_count, 1, touch: true)
    # Touches `last_discussed_at`.
    Topic.reset_counters(18, :messages, touch: :last_discussed_at)
    # Touches `updated_at` and `last_discussed_at`.
    Topic.update_counters(18, messages_count: 5, touch: %i( updated_at last_discussed_at ))

    Fixes #26724.

    Ryuta Kamizono

  • Emulate db trigger behaviour for after_commit :destroy, :update.

    Race conditions can occur when an ActiveRecord is destroyed twice or destroyed and updated. The callbacks should only be triggered once, similar to a SQL database trigger.

    Stefan Budeanu

  • Moved DecimalWithoutScale, Text, and UnsignedInteger from Active Model to Active Record.

    Iain Beeston

  • Fix write_attribute method to check whether an attribute is aliased or not, and use the aliased attribute name if needed.

    Prathamesh Sonpatki

  • Fix read_attribute method to check whether an attribute is aliased or not, and use the aliased attribute name if needed.

    Fixes #26417.

    Prathamesh Sonpatki

  • PostgreSQL & MySQL: Use big integer as primary key type for new tables.

    Jon McCartie, Pavel Pravosud

    Fixes #27125.

    Ryuta Kamizono

  • Fix the uniqueness validation scope with a polymorphic association.

    Sergey Alekseev

  • Raise ActiveRecord::RecordNotFound from collection *_ids setters for unknown IDs with a better error message.

    Changes the collection *_ids setters to cast provided IDs the data type of the primary key set in the association, not the model primary key.

    Dominic Cleal

  • For PostgreSQL >= 9.4 use pgcrypto's gen_random_uuid() instead of uuid-ossp's UUID generation function.

    Yuji Yaginuma, Yaw Boakye

  • Introduce Model#reload_<association> to bring back the behavior of Article.category(true) where category is a singular association.

    The force reloading of the association reader was deprecated in #20888. Unfortunately the suggested alternative of article.reload.category does not expose the same behavior.

    This patch adds a reader method with the prefix reload_ for singular associations. This method has the same semantics as passing true to the association reader used to have.

    Yves Senn

  • Make sure eager loading ActiveRecord::Associations also loads constants defined in ActiveRecord::Associations::Preloader.

    Yves Senn

  • Allow ActionController::Parameters-like objects to be passed as values for Postgres HStore columns.

    ActiveRecord::Base.connection_pool.stat # =>
    { size: 15, connections: 1, busy: 1, dead: 0, idle: 0, waiting: 0, checkout_timeout: 5 }

    Pavel Evstigneev

  • Avoid unscope(:order) when limit_value is presented for count and exists?.

    If limit_value is presented, records fetching order is very important for performance. We should not unscope the order in the case.

    Ryuta Kamizono

  • Fix an Active Record DateTime field NoMethodError caused by incomplete datetime.

    Fixes #24195.

    Sen Zhang

  • Allow slice to take an array of methods(without the need for splatting).

    Cohen Carlisle

  • Improved partial writes with HABTM and has many through associations to fire database query only if relation has been changed.

    Fixes #19663.

    Mehmet Emin İNAÇ

  • Deprecate passing arguments and block at the same time to ActiveRecord::QueryMethods#select.

    Prathamesh Sonpatki

  • Fixed: Optimistic locking does not work well with null in the database.

    Fixes #26024.


  • Fixed support for case insensitive comparisons of text columns in PostgreSQL.

    Edho Arief

  • Serialize JSON attribute value nil as SQL NULL, not JSON null.

    Trung Duc Tran

  • Return true from update_attribute when the value of the attribute to be updated is unchanged.

    Fixes #26593.

    Prathamesh Sonpatki

  • Always store errors details information with symbols.

    When the association is autosaved we were storing the details with string keys. This was creating inconsistency with other details that are added using the Errors#add method. It was also inconsistent with the Errors#messages storage.

    To fix this inconsistency we are always storing with symbols. This will cause a small breaking change because in those cases the details could be accessed as strings keys but now it can not.

    Fix #26499.

    Rafael Mendonça França, Marcus Vieira

  • Calling touch on a model using optimistic locking will now leave the model in a non-dirty state with no attribute changes.

    Fixes #26496.

    Jakob Skjerning

  • Using a mysql2 connection after it fails to reconnect will now have an error message saying the connection is closed rather than an undefined method error message.

    Dylan Thacker-Smith

  • PostgreSQL array columns will now respect the encoding of strings contained in the array.

    Fixes #26326.

    Sean Griffin

  • Inverse association instances will now be set before after_find or after_initialize callbacks are run.

    Fixes #26320.

    Sean Griffin

  • Remove unnecessarily association load when a belongs_to association has already been loaded then the foreign key is changed directly and the record saved.

    James Coleman

  • Remove standardized column types/arguments spaces in schema dump.

    Tim Petricola

  • Avoid loading records from database when they are already loaded using the pluck method on a collection.

    Fixes #25921.

    Ryuta Kamizono

  • Remove text default treated as an empty string in non-strict mode for consistency with other types.

    Strict mode controls how MySQL handles invalid or missing values in data-change statements such as INSERT or UPDATE. If strict mode is not in effect, MySQL inserts adjusted values for invalid or missing values and produces warnings.

    def test_mysql_not_null_defaults_non_strict
      using_strict(false) do
        with_mysql_not_null_table do |klass|
          record =
          assert_nil record.non_null_integer
          assert_nil record.non_null_string
          assert_nil record.non_null_text
          assert_nil record.non_null_blob
          assert_equal 0,  record.non_null_integer
          assert_equal "", record.non_null_string
          assert_equal "", record.non_null_text
          assert_equal "", record.non_null_blob

    Ryuta Kamizono

  • SQLite3 migrations to add a column to an existing table can now be successfully rolled back when the column was given and invalid column type.

    Fixes #26087.

    Travis O'Neill

  • Deprecate sanitize_conditions. Use sanitize_sql instead.

    Ryuta Kamizono

  • Doing count on relations that contain LEFT OUTER JOIN Arel node no longer force a DISTINCT. This solves issues when using count after a left_joins.

    Maxime Handfield Lapointe

  • RecordNotFound raised by association.find exposes id, primary_key and model methods to be consistent with RecordNotFound raised by Record.find.

    Michel Pigassou

  • Hashes can once again be passed to setters of composed_of, if all of the mapping methods are methods implemented on Hash.

    Fixes #25978.

    Sean Griffin

  • Fix the SELECT statement in #table_comment for MySQL.

    Takeshi Akima

  • Virtual attributes will no longer raise when read on models loaded from the database.

    Hiroyuki Ishii

  • Add newline between each migration in structure.sql.

    Keeps schema migration inserts as a single commit, but allows for easier git diffing.

    Fixes #25504.

    Grey Baker, Norberto Lopes

  • The flag error_on_ignored_order_or_limit has been deprecated in favor of the current error_on_ignored_order.

    Xavier Noria

  • Batch processing methods support limit:

    Post.limit(10_000).find_each do |post|
      # ...

    It also works in find_in_batches and in_batches.

    Xavier Noria

  • Using group with an attribute that has a custom type will properly cast the hash keys after calling a calculation method like count.

    Fixes #25595.

    Sean Griffin

  • Fix the generated #to_param method to use omission: '' so that the resulting output is actually up to 20 characters, not effectively 17 to leave room for the default "...". Also call #parameterize before #truncate and make the separator: /-/ to maximize the information included in the output.

    Fixes #23635.

    Rob Biedenharn

  • Ensure concurrent invocations of the connection reaper cannot allocate the same connection to two threads.

    Fixes #25585.

    Matthew Draper

  • Inspecting an object with an associated array of over 10 elements no longer truncates the array, preventing inspect from looping infinitely in some cases.

    Kevin McPhillips

  • Removed the unused methods ActiveRecord::Base.connection_id and ActiveRecord::Base.connection_id=.

    Sean Griffin

  • Ensure hashes can be assigned to attributes created using composed_of.

    Fixes #25210.

    Sean Griffin

  • Fix logging edge case where if an attribute was of the binary type and was provided as a Hash.

    Jon Moss

  • Handle JSON deserialization correctly if the column default from database adapter returns '' instead of nil.

    Johannes Opper

  • Introduce new Active Record transaction error classes for catching transaction serialization failures or deadlocks.

    Erol Fornoles

  • PostgreSQL: Fix db:structure:load silent failure on SQL error.

    The command line flag -v ON_ERROR_STOP=1 should be used when invoking psql to make sure errors are not suppressed.


    psql -v ON_ERROR_STOP=1 -q -f awesome-file.sql my-app-db

    Fixes #23818.
