*SVN*
+* Fixed that HTTP authentication should work if the header is called REDIRECT_X_HTTP_AUTHORIZATION as well #6754 [mislaw]
+
* Don't mistakenly interpret the request uri as the query string. #8731 [lifofifo, Jeremy Kemper]
* Make ActionView#view_paths an attr_accessor for real this time. Also, don't perform an unnecessary #compact on the @view_paths array in #initialize. Closes #8582 [dasil003, julik, rick]
