News

The noteworthy changes for each Clearance version are included here. For a complete changelog, see the git history for each version via the version links.

1.16.0 - January 16, 2017

Security

  • Clearance users can now help prevent session fixation attacks by setting Clearance.configuration.rotate_csrf_on_sign_in to true. This will cause the user's CSRF token to be rotated on sign in and is recommended for all Clearance applications. This setting will default to true in Clearance 2.0. Clearance will emit a warning on each sign in until this configuration setting is explicitly set to true or false.

1.15.1 - October 6, 2016

Fixed

  • Password reset form redirect no longer uses a named route helper, which means it will work for developers that have customized their routes.

1.15.0 - September 26, 2016

Security

  • Prevent possible password reset token leak to external sites linked to on the password reset page. See PR #707 for more information.

1.14.2 - August 10, 2016

Fixed

  • Fixed incompatibility with attr_encrypted gem by inlining the body of the encrypt helper method used in the BCrypt password strategy.

1.14.1 - May 12, 2016

Fixed

  • Fixed insertion of include Clearance::User when running the install generator in an app that already has a User model.
  • Updated deny_access matcher to assert against configured redirect location rather than hard coded /.

1.14.0 - April 29, 2016

Added

  • Clearance::BackDoor now accepts a block, allowing the user for a test to be looked up by a parameter other than id if you have overridden to_param for the User model.

Fixed

  • We now correctly track the dirty state of User#encrypted_password, which fixes custom validations on User#password (e.g. validating password length) that were conditional on the password actually changing.
  • The clearance:install generator will now generate a User model that inherits from ApplicationRecord if run on a Rails 5 app that doesn't already have a User model.

Deprecated

  • User#password_changing is deprecated in favor of automatic dirty tracking on encrypted_password and password. If you are calling this in your application you should be able to remove it.

1.13.0 - March 4, 2016

Added

  • Clearance now supports Rails 5.0.0.beta3 and newer.

Fixed

  • Clearance will now infer the parameter name to use when accessing user parameters in a request. This previously used :user, which was incorrect for customized user models.
  • Generated feature specs no longer rely on RSpec monkey patches.

1.12.1 - January 7, 2016

Fixed

  • Fixed the create_users migration generated by rails generate clearance:install under Rails 3.x.

1.12.0 - November 17, 2015

Added

  • Users will now see a flash message when redirected to sign in by require_login. This I18n key for this message is flashes.failure_when_not_signed_in and defaults to "Please sign in to continue".
  • Added significant API documentation. API documentation effort is ongoing.

Fixed

  • Fixed expectation in the generated visitor_resets_password_spec.rb file.
  • Corrected indentation of routes inserted by the routes generator.
  • Corrected indentation of include Clearance::User when the install generator adds it to an existing user class.

1.11.0 - August 21, 2015

Added

  • Add sign_in and sign_in_as helper methods to view specs. These helpers avoid errors from verified partial doubles that come from. See 462c009.

Fixed

  • clearance:routes generator now properly disables internal routes in your Clearance initializer.
  • Clearance now accesses the cookie jar via ActionDispatch::Request rather than Rack::Request. This is more consistent with what Rails does internally.

Deprecated

  • Clearance::Testing::Helpers has been deprecated in favor of Clearance::Testing::ControllerHelpers. Most users are accessing these helpers by requiring clearance/rspec or clearance/test_unit and should be unaffected.

1.10.1 - May 15, 2015

Deprecated

  • All clearance-provided password strategies other than BCrypt have been deprecated. You can continue to use those strategies without a deprecation warning by adding clearance-deprecated_password_strategies to your Gemfile.

1.9.0 - April 3, 2015

Added

  • The change password mailer now produces a multipart message which includes a text part along with the previously existing HTML part. To override the text part, add change_password.text.erb alongside your change_password.html.erb file.

Fixed

  • Custom user_model configured in a Rails initializer will now be reloaded in development mode.
  • Change password template now contains "Change my password" link text to address an issue linking the URL in some mail clients.

1.8.1 - March 3, 2015

Security

  • Enable cross-site request forgery protection on sessions#create. See 7f5d56e.

Fixed

  • All methods included by Clearance::Controller are now excluded from action_methods.

1.8.0 - January 23, 2015

Added

  • The remember token cookie name is now customizable via Clearance.configuration.cookie_name.

Fixed

  • Fixed a redirect loop on the sign in page for applications that are still using the deprecated authorize filter.
  • Signed in users that attempt to visit the sign in path are now redirected. The redirect URL defaults to the same URL used for the redirect after sign in, but can be customized by overriding passwords_controller#url_for_signed_in_users

Deprecated

  • users_controller#avoid_sign_in is now deprecated in favor of redirect_signed_in_users which is more accurately named.

1.7.0 - January, 8, 2015

Fixed

  • Fix the negation of the deny_access matcher in Rails 4.0.x on Ruby 2.2

Deprecated

  • The authorize filter has been deprecated in favor of require_login. Update all reference to the filter including any calls to skip_before_filter or skip_before_action.
  • The Clearance.root method has been deprecated. It was used internally and unlikely to impact external users.

1.6.1 - January 6, 2015

Fixed

  • Secure cookies are no longer overwritten when the user visits a non-HTTPS URL.

1.6.0 - December 20, 2014

Added

  • When using Rails 4.2, password reset emails are sent with the ActiveJob-compatible #deliver_later method.

Fixed

  • Prevent BCrypt strategy from raising an exception when encypted_password is nil.

1.4.0 - July 18, 2014

Added

  • user_params method was added to Clearance::UsersController which provides a convenient place to override the parameters used when creating users.
  • Controllers now inherit from Clearance::BaseController to allow for easily adding behavior to all of them.

Changed

  • The sign out link in the default application layout has been replaced with a semantically correct sign out button. This also removes an unnecessary JavaScript dependency.

Fixed

  • Clearance now uses original_fullpath when redirecting to a saved URL after login. This should improve the behavior in mounted engines.

1.3.0 - March 14, 2014

Added

  • Installing Clearance with an existing User model will now create a migration that includes adding remember tokens to all existing user records.

1.2.1 - March 6, 2014

Fixed

  • Query string is now included in the redirect URL when Clearance redirects to a previously stored URL.

1.2.0 - February 28, 2014

Added

  • Support for Rails 4.1.0.rc1
  • Sign in can now be disabled with config.allow_sign_in = false

Changed

  • Sign in failure message is now customized exclusively via I18n. SessionsController#flash_failure_after_create is no longer called. To customize the message, change the clearance.controllers.sessions.bad_email_or_password or flashes.failure_after_create key.

Deprecated

  • clearance/testing is now deprecated. Require clearance/rspec or clearance/test_unit as appropriate.

1.1.0 - November 21, 2013

Added

  • Validate email with EmailValidator strict mode.
  • The cookie_expiration configuration lambda can now be called with a cookies parameter. Allows the Clearance cookie expiration to be set according to the value of another cookie (such as remember_me).
  • Allow cookie domain and path configuration.
  • Add sign in guards.

Fixed

Deprecated

Added

  • Make Clearance i18n aware.

0.6.4 - May 12, 2009

Changed

  • Include Clearance::User in User model in app.
  • Include Clearance::Authentication in ApplicationController.
  • Namespace controllers under Clearance module.
  • Routes move to engine, use namespaced controllers but publicly the same.
  • If you want to override a controller, subclass it like SessionsController < Clearance::SessionsController. This gives you access to usual hooks such as url_after_create.

Changed

Removed

  • Removed email downcasing because local-part is case sensitive per RFC5321.
  • Removed unnecessary session[:salt].

0.4.4 - February 2, 2009

Added

  • Added a generator for Cucumber features.

Changed

  • Standardized naming for "Sign up," "Sign in," and "Sign out".
