Abort ActiveRecord Callbacks

Abort ActiveRecord Callbacks: Ruby on Rails 5 New Features
Abort ActiveRecord Callbacks: Ruby on Rails 5 New Features

Aborting ActiveRecord callbacks has changed in Ruby on Rails 5. Callbacks no longer halt when the last statement in a method is false. Instead, if you want a callback to halt, you must do it explicitly using throw(:abort). Kevin provides an example of a Rails 4 model where the callback chain could be halted accidentally and the record would not be saved to the database. Then he shows how to explicitly halt the callback chain in Rails 5.
