Devise 1.1.6 has just been released and it follows 3.0.4 release. Rails 3.0.4 changes how CSRF works and adds a new method called handle_unverified_request that should be properly overridden by authentication frameworks. Devise 1.1.6 implements this method and others small security fixes.
If you have updated to Rails 3.0.4, you must update to check out the CHANGELOG .1.1.6 . Those using Devise 1.2.rc should use master for awhile, another is coming soon. For more information,
There are two major changes in this fix, the behaviour when CSRF protection fails has changed and the token will now be required for all non-GET requests.
