Either the ActiveRecord method preload_associations has been removed or renamed. What's the alternative? An explanation why this has been removed, would be much appreciated.

Hmm, yes, I didn't really think this was a public API, but I guess I should add a deprecation. The new way to do it is:

ActiveRecord::Associations::Preloader.new(records, associations).run

True that. But there are definitely edge cases where manually calling preload_associations made sense. Thanks for the hint!
