Rails 7 fixes timezone awareness for tsrange and tstzrange columns

Earlier the tsrange/tstzrange column would throw a TypeError if a timezone was set in the application config. This column now stores time with the correct timezone.

Rails 7.1 adds the --parent option to the job generator

Rails adds :strict option to the default SQLite database.yml file

SQLite can be configured to be strict to circumvent some of its quirks. Rails can now specify this in the default database.yml file.

Rails now validates options used in migration functions

Previously erroneous options were silently ignored in migration functions such as "create_table" or "add_column", now they raise an error.

Rails now allows specifying the HTTP status code in assert_redirected_to

The assertion statement previous was only able to assert that the request was redirected, but not the status code.

Rails adds source attribute to its ErrorReporting API

Subscribers can now filter error reports based on source, making it easier to ignore internal errors or focus on specific errors.

Rails raises exception when config.active_storage.service is not explicitly set

Developers are no longer presented vague errors when config.active_storage.service is not set. Instead a clear exception is raised.

Rails now supports infinite range options in LengthValidators

Models that need to be validated for length can use infinite ranges in :in / :within options

Rails no longer produces false-positive query cache hits when querying with mutable bound parameters

ActiveRecord now dups and freezes complex types when making query attributes which prevents false-positive query cache hits.

An option to download .eml files directly from the browser when using the email preview feature will now be available in Rails 7.0.
