+* Do not load all child records for inverse case.
+ currently `post.comments.find(` would load all
+ comments for the given post to set the inverse association.
+ This has a huge performance penalty. Because if post has 100k
+ records and all these 100k records would be loaded in memory
+ even though the comment id was supplied.
+ Fix is to use in-memory records only if loaded? is true. Otherwise
+ load the records using full sql.
+ Fixes #10509.
+ *Neeraj Singh*
* `inspect` on Active Record model classes does not initiate a
new connection. This means that calling `inspect`, when the
database is missing, will no longer raise an exception.
