Improvements

  • The indifferent_params plugin is now optimized when using Rack 2, using Rack 2's query_parser API, and it no longer needs to do a deep copy of the params.

  • The Content-Type and Content-Length headers are no longer added for 1xx, 204, 205, and 304 responses.

  • The assets_paths method in the assets plugin now works correctly when subresource integrity is enabled.

  • The asset paths are now escaped in tags by the assets and assets_preloading plugins. While it's unlikely a developer would use an asset path that requires escaping, that case is now handled correctly.

  • The h plugin no longer calls Rack::Utils.escape_html, instead implementing it's own html escaping.

  • The assets plugin now uses the h plugin, instead of calling Rack::Utils.escape_html.

Backwards Compatibility

  • The h plugin's html escaping no longer escapes “/”, which is a behavior change if you are using any recent version of rack. The security arguments made to escape “/” could be applied to many other characters, so if you want to escape “/”, you should probably use a separate method that escapes all W characters.
