- With 6a81ccd6 ActiveRecord::Base.all returns a Relation instead of an Array. Finally.
- 99ea1a87 changes the behavior of Object#try to return nil if the receiving object doesn’t implement the method. You can use Object#try! if you want the old behavior.
- ActionController::Live allows any method to stream data to the client live. 0899be57 has the changelog entry.
