The render plugin now supports :check_paths and :allowed_paths options. Setting :check_paths to true will turn on path checking of template files. By default, template files are required to be in the :views directory, otherwise an exception will be raised. Using the :check_paths option can prevent security issues when template names are derived from user input. The :allowed_paths option overrides which path prefixes are allowed. In Roda 3, :check_paths will default to true.
