Ruby on Rails update & difference with attr_accessible.
Im following along with the "build a simple Ruby on Rails Application" I noticed that models/status.rb file does not include the attr_accessible line. I don't fully understand what its for but I believe its to allow the user to use something on the server, or grant access in some way. I am using the most current version of ruby and was wondering if anyone knew if this is a change because of versions, or why attr_accessible doesn't work.
Any information on this would be very helpful!

Rails 4 now uses strong parameters and protecting the attributes is now a job of the Controller.
class PeopleController < ApplicationController def create Person.create(person_params) end private def person_params params.require(:person).permit(:name, :age) end end
