Heroku just released their Dashboard Notification Center. On it, you'll get updates and alerts that affect you and your running applications. This includes security vulnerabilities, changes to Heroku default configurations, add-on updates, and more.
Just yesterday afternoon, Heroku announced that MRI Ruby 2.0 is now the default version of Ruby for all new applications.

It's a commercial fork of Rails to offer longer term framework support.
