Rails 3.1.0.rc3 has been released!

Hey folks. Sorry for the multiple releases in such a short time span,
but the security fixes released yesterday seem to have broken people’s
applications. Even though this is a release candidate, I am not happy
about breaking stuff.

I’ve pushed a 3.1.0.rc3. Please test it against your application
against this release candidate and report any regressions to the rails
core mailing list
. I
would like to hear your feedback, good or bad. Especially if it’s good.

In two weeks, if there are no show stopping issues I will release the
final version. If we do find regressions, we’ll fix them, I will
publish another release candidate, and we’ll put another two weeks on
the clock.

I want to make it clear that I will not wait two weeks between release
candidates. I want to get the final done as quickly as possible, so
I’ll try to release RCs as quickly as possible.


Here are some of the major changes to the RC branch:

  • mailto SafeBuffer fixes
  • escape_javascript SafeBuffer fixes
  • Multiple sources in sprocket helpers

For an exaustive list, please check out the commits on

Thanks for your patience everyone!
