Rails 5 bump

Hi rails team,

will there be a rails 5.2.4.1 upgrade anytime soon?
There is one fix in this comparison, which we would like to have in 5.2 as upgrade to 6 takes a bit longer :frowning:

https://github.com/rails/rails/compare/v5.2.4.1…5-2-stable

It would be cool to know a timeline for this.

Thanks

Lutz

Hi Lutz,

Based on the maintenance policy (https://guides.rubyonrails.org/maintenance_policy.html) there probably won’t be another 5.2.x which contains those bug fixes.

I suggest you to point your Gemfile to 5-2-stable instead while you’re working on upgrading to 6.0.

Thank you,

Prem

Hi Prem,

thank you very much for your reply.

Is this an official statement or more an interpretation of the MaintenancePolicy.

I am askign, because I would see it a bit differently.
With rails 5.2.4.1, there was a HotFix change, which lead to certain tests for the rails framework to be broken. I mean Specifically this change:
https://github.com/rails/rails/compare/v5.2.4…v5.2.4.1

And there is a followup change to fix the ActionController::TestSession as this behaves differently in 5.2.4.1 now.
https://github.com/rails/rails/commit/13a07268160c1093d4b0ff40e45e487d635fa6b9

In 5-2-stable there is a fix for this included, and I really question, why this does not warrant a new 5.2.x version.

I would love to hear more opinions here.

Thanks

Lutz
