+* Move `secret_key_base` from `config/initializers/secret_token.rb`
+ to `config/secrets.yml`.
+
+ `secret_key_base` is now saved in `Rails.application.secrets.secret_key_base`
+ and it fallbacks to the value of `config.secret_key_base` when it is not
+ present in `config/secrets.yml`.
+
+ `config/initializers/secret_token.rb` is not generated by default
+ in new applications.
+
+ *Guillermo Iguaran*
+
+* Generate a new `secrets.yml` file in the `config` folder for new
+ applications. By default, this file contains the application's `secret_key_base`,
+ but it could also be used to store other secrets such as access keys for external
+ APIs.
+
+ The secrets added to this file will be accessible via `Rails.application.secrets`.
+ For example, with the following `secrets.yml`:
+
+ development:
+ secret_key_base: 3b7cd727ee24e8444053437c36cc66c3
+ some_api_key: SOMEKEY
+
+ `Rails.application.secrets.some_api_key` will return `SOMEKEY` in the development
+ environment.
+
+ *Guillermo Iguaran*
+
* Add `ENV['DATABASE_URL']` support in `rails dbconsole`. Fixes #13320.
