Spree 0.70.2 has been released. The primary reason for this release is support for the new Rails 3.1.2 release which contains some important security updates. There are also a couple of other minor changes which you can find using the Github compare.
We’re also experimenting with a new approach to Rails versions in this release. We’ve traditionally locked down the specific version of Rails that you can use with any one release of Spree. This is because in the past, even minor changes to Rails often caused problems with Spree if users tried to upgrade before we had a chance to verify everything.
This version of Spree will allow you to use either Rails 3.1.1 or the new 3.1.2 release. It will not, however, work with a possible future release of Rails until we also release a new Spree 0.70.×. This will allow us to ensure that Spree works with each new version of Rails but allow more flexibility for users who wish to upgrade Rails versions without upgrading Spree and visa versa.
